Wouldn't scare me. In fact, it's got me very interested in that bike. No e-start on a street machine is a non-issue for me, especially if it's a smaller displacement...where the weight savings and simplicity is fine on a fair-weather bike like the SR.

The absolute stupid simplicity is what does it for me. Aircooled, kick start...it's all business.

Seems odd that they would use FI, but kick only. Turn it on, wait for fuel pump to prime, then kick it? I suppose if it starts as easy as a WRR, it would only take 1 or 2 kicks. 23HP? (edit 25), I'll stick with a WR250.

Kyles new CRF450r is FI and is kick only with NO battery. I still dont have that figured out yet but it sure starts easy.

There's a capacitor in the fuel pump assembly to assist initial priming. They also switched those bikes to AC, like KTMs, in 2009. No battery makes sense on a MX bike, its usually not too far to the truck.
Kick start only must just be a hipster thing on a new street bike. Magic buttons sure are nice.

No way. Kickstarts are superior. I will always enjoy picking it up, kicking it 10 times with the decomp because it was flooded, then trying to position the bike in a way that I can throw my weight down and not drop it again and start over. It's always better above 80 degrees in full gear.
