My brother has one of these, it's a really fun bike to ride. Personally I ride a DL-650, it's a hybrid street/off road bike leaning more to street riding. Ducati makes one.

    This all started out with a few riders putting road tires on dirt bikes, once it was seen as becoming a big thing the bike manufacturers started building motoard ready bikes.

    Super moto is that new fangled racing hybrid - half dirt, half street with racers from all walks: Motocross, gp, heck probably even trials riders. It's kind of answering the question of who the best rider is overall.

    i can't believe they go to the expense of using Ti and then cut so many corners with the welding. i can understand the use of mig but argon can't be a large overhead for a mass production company

    any idea how long they last before failing? (probably just until the warrenty expires )

    happy new year all

    I guess the AMA had an issue with " tard " being somewhere in the name.

    It all started out as Super Motard before AMA even recognized it as a class.

    Oh well ... the AMA has gone " PC " ( Politically Correct )

    Peersonally I am not a member of the " PC " crowd. Guess I am too old!

    It's an interesting riding sport .... taking a dirt bike and racing it on asphalt.
    Whelp, no being in moto-x since '83(woods riding only till a few yrs ago) and never heard of that Honda scoot, but that isn't supprizing, when I was stationed over there in the early '60s seems Joe would create a new scoot every mo. I assumed it was an acronym for Super Moto-X since it is about half MX, thanks for clearing up the question, but I really like the sport unforunately not much TV coverage.
    Keep the right side up.

    Actually the term is " Super Motard " or one word " Supermotard ".

    Dirt bikes with street tires raced on road. Take the knobbie off a dirt bike and put on a good pair of street treads and you can get into racing rather cheaply.

    Here is a quote from a good web page on the topic.

    Even with only a change from knobbies to street tires, Yamaha's YZ250 motocross bike makes a great Supermotard mount.
