Default Doing a project for a class

Evening Everyone,

I'm currently a student at American University business school. I have to do this semester marketing project and I thought... why not do it on something that I really enjoy. I have to come up with a mock memo and presentation that either proposes an idea or address an issue. I was thinking of proposing a new bike to be released by Honda in the US which is smaller in ccclass (250, 400,or 500). I know there some issues with women where the seat height is too high or the weight of the bike is too heavy if on the ground (they are ALL heavy when on the ground though). I'm thinking of something like the NSR 500 in terms of aesthetics with power ban similar to a 600. I getting ahead of myself at the moment but my questions at the moment is… if this bike was an optionwhile you were shopping for a bike, wouldstrike yourinterest? Thanks for the info!!

I've been trying to come up with something but the CC selection of 250, 400 & 500 are on the low side in a street machine for me. I wouldn't consider buying a new street bike under 600. Offroad unit yes.

Yes, yes I know, I own two. A 400 and 500 but they are vintage.

That should be an interesting project....but the new 250R solved some of it. Lacks power, looks great and seat height is perfect for us shorties....LOL!!!

Yeah... it's my last semester and thank god!! I don't think I can take another one... it's cutting into my riding time . Anyway, I sawhow the new Kawi has been revamped which only took about twenty years. I was looking for suggestions that I might want to incorporate into my "sales" pitch. I was basing it on that Kawi needs a little competition in the lower cc class/es. I was thinking that ride height, weight, ascetics, and power or what people would consider when looking at smaller cc bikes.
