I had a 98 for awhile (the same as the US 97model), but only kept it for a few months.
Power was just a bit much and it was a bit loud for my liking.
We also had a road registrable version, but unfortunately mine wasn't one of them...
And considering I already had a KDX200 and a KTM200EXC (both road registrable here) I got rid of it.
Fun bike though.
