Me too, no chance though, I'm betting the 850 twin, which would still be very nice. A redesigned Viking with the 850 would stop me from going to Honda. I'm not a fan of big singles, I was even looking at trading my 450 for a KTM 690 but the thought of owning another big 700cc single cylinder has stopped me from doing so. Long rides with my hands tingling for an hour afterwards, I'm over that, twin balancer shaft or not!


850cc twin like the Wolverine
Self levelling rear suspension like the Wolvy
Decent noise reduction
TURF MODE!
