It's not real grunty down low like the XR though, but has more power available, over a wider range and doesn't get breathy.

A 330 watt power supply would be a big plus. I'd like to know how high the seat is, still haven't seen anyone on it or near it..
i think honda will make changes (cams etc.) to change that to more low end on this bike vrs your cbr250 motor. no doubt honda makes great motor. i wish they'd outsource them to other mfg. who do better with the rest of the bike.
