I had to look up what the DN-01 is. Rare for sure, lol. I'm not a fan of CVTs with "manual mode" but it does look sleek.
I really like them. Not everyone does though. The looks seem to be very polarizing.
The hyosung gv650 is also slick as a mofo too. (I may have a soft spot for sport cruisers)

Automatic Bikes will get you evil looks more than Automatic Jeeps, Mustangs or Toyota 86s lol
Oh, I'm aware.
With my feet/ankle issues, I'll probably eventually have to get one. I'm hoping the shifter on a newer bike (remember my bike is a 76) won't feel like I'm tearing/breaking my foot when I shift.

Need a Jockey Shifter then, I've seen a few of these around Lejeune. Its highly possible the guys I saw on them were amputees.

Yeah that NM4 was a funky looking machine!
Great riding position (for me at least), and lots of built in storage. I really like it, but I prefer the looks on the DN-01.
Also, the passenger seat is the extended back rest for the driver. It flips up.

Everyone around here calls em "suicide shifters". I blame, American Chopper. I think that's where they originally heard it called that.

I think it depends on where the clutch lever is as to what its called. The Clutch on the shifter lever itself seems to be a good fit for your ankle condition.
