Got to sit on a GPR-S
Yesterday I attended a 'Green Transportation' show .. http://www.greentransportation2008.com/ .. there were several exhibitors and it was a great time mostly spent chatting with some friends in the local EV scene.
Electric Motorsport was there, though Todd was not as he is still in Thailand. He had two employees there who I'd never met before. They had an EVT America Z-20, a converted Ninja style bike, an ATEV and a GPR-S. They described their business as doing custom conversions for people, and that they don't convert "old" bikes because of the quality of the parts and stuff on newer bikes.
Anyway.. the GPR-S was interesting. I didn't take it out for a ride but a) it looked very very well put together and b) it's a lot smaller than I'd expected from the picture (link below). The battery box is rather narrow, and the bike as a whole is much narrower than the typical ninja-style bike. Also the bike I sat on had taller handlebars letting you sit more upright than being hunched over in head-first fashion.
It's still not quite the style I personally prefer - I prefer the laid back style, my Honda Rebel really fits me very well. But this GPR-S is pretty close.
my Honda Rebel really fits me very well.
Is your Rebel a 250 or 450??
I take it, it is a 234cc engine with 4 stroke OHC(overhead camshaft) parallel twin with 5 speed transmission??
Which is basically the 1980's model. ---> somewhat familiar with Honda bikes
