Sweet bike - never heard of it before! I did a little research and it looks like they're something of a collectible. Probably would be a great freeway\urban commuter too. Kinda ironic that Honda would produce a retro styled bike inspired by the classic British bikes they sent down the dumper when they introduced the CB750. Should be a fun bike for your wife (and you if she lets you take it out), and if she graduates to a Duc, you should hang onto it if possible.
Any specs - hp, torque, weight, etc.? Sounds like the engine was a solid, hi-tech dirt bike model so my guess is it'd run circles around the new Enfields.
