    Built to Canadian specs so it pass the emission test.

    At first I thought this is the V4 they built for some time, but it's a V2. And it's not just another version of the (good) old Virago engine, but a newer one with 60* instead of 75. With a bore/stroke of 100/83mm this engine has potential, it could revv easily to 7000rpm with a few improvements. Seems like a departure from the super-longstroke of the pushrod Drag Star 1600.

    This has a drive belt as does the Vulcan 900 anyone got experience with these ? You ride here yuo will end up on dirt roads and gravel no way around it.

    That is about the only thing making me nervous about it.

    Hmm!!! I dont see how yuo can avoid dirt and gravel riding the Issan roads. That could be a real problem. Freeway riding in the states I doubt there would be any problem either.

    Well the 2009 Honda 1300 fits the bill perfectly fuel injection and a drive shaft how the heck yuo would get one legally now thats a different story?
