Honda DN-01 specification comparison.

Ok, I’ve put up this page for those who choose things based on specifications – you know who you are. High performance specifications never tell the real story or effect sales. Only real world performance determines whether it will be a suitable motorcycle for you.  Regardless of my personal opinions here are some interesting comparisons with other Honda motorcycles.
