Well, don't feel like the Lone Ranger there Kimosabe - they don't sell the TU250x in the Peoples Republic of Kalifornia either.

Considering it would probably cost 2/3 of the price of Gladius (excuse my
French) here, it's probably a wise idea not to bother importing it.

I'm gonna guess a VTR250 can't match it's fuel consumption figures, BUT,
a VTR250 CAN be fitted with a Ducati badge and I'd be the main man around
town!

I'm really liking the Kawasaki Versys 1000. Hope to see it in the U.S. soon.

I fell in love the with the wr250r today after reading a ride review (550km in Canada) at speeds around 100km per hour for most of the ride.

Seems like the best lightweight dual sport of the bunch if u wanna do any slab distance of relevance.

I absolutely LOVE my WR250X. I've got a set of dirt wheels that I can swap out to in about 15 minutes.

19.000 revs?

Anyone in the mood for a 250cc, 110+mph, 19.000 rpm superbike?



I'll write that again.
19.000 rpm redline.


I believe it had something like 45hp at over 15k rpm.
Sick.

Can't have that?
FINE!

Gimme a RS250 2 stroke (60ish hp), kkthnx!

While I've always felt that Honda built really nice machines and am a fan of many Honda products, for the most part their modern motorcycles just leave me a little "blah" in the styling department.

But, THAT is a sweet looking bike!

I doubt I'd really warm up to the inline 4, but just looking at it is nice.
