    Interesting. Links to more info?
    If it's a bit like the CBR150Rs a very few of us have, and is thus easy/turn-key-ish, like the Ninja 250s, it would be just what our club and the series needs.

    Well, remember some of those bikes were ran for YEARS, back when endurance was longer, and frankly a lot hotter than this year too, and had a LOT Of miles on them. (and yes, one had an easy life) And knowing the previous owners, not much maintenance either. ( I know for a fact, NO valve adjustments) Beat something for five years plus, with little maint, and it might blow up. Those little bikes lasted longer than some Ninja 250s, even then. Also, ours, carefully jetted and set just slightly conservatively, has ran over a full season more than both the other two put together, and is still fine. Spend more time measuring and testing jetting than guessing, and they hold together fine my friend. [img]<<GRAEMLIN_URL>>/wink.gif[/img]

    Yes, my smugness virtually guarantees ours blowing up big at TWS. Sorry in advance Barry!

    Those are in Mexico if they are the 125cc. The naked ones are pretty cheap.

    Well, I know Yamaha has a updated 150 coming out in a few markets, like pacific rim, and for some reason, Columbia over this way, so I'd assumed that was it. The 125 always seemed nice, but heavy for F6.

    Re: This.

    Yes, would be nice to see these over here in this market.

    Simply easy to aquire.
    Turn Key for any young racer to get involved.
    No Custom builds to meet the rulebook and be competitive within the CMRA or maybe even other clubs.

    Even lower insurance rerquirements to help sales for dealerships.

    There are some positives to have such a machine here in the states.
