And my favorite, the Aprilia rebadge RS4 125 as I understand,

A real mini adv, sumoto and DS 125 4t, and a real premium mini sport bike. Why aren't these here??? Yeah, I know, nobody will buy them! Maybe they could dress one as a Harley Sprint?

I'd buy a Derbi. I had two DS-50's when I was a kid and I still think Derbi is one of the coolest manufacturers. I am also a big fan of small displacement!

I'd venture to say the 125cc upper engine limit is a factor.
Not that 125 street legal bikes would not sell in the US (Grom and other bikes), but 250 is really the starting # in this country.
