50 rwhp and weighs 320 lbs. wet?
I think that would sell well.
It seems like it has taken the economic downturn to get factories to understand that you need to produce cool bikes that appeal to young people so that they get into the sport and then stay in the sport for the long term. I don't know if any studies have been done, but I would bet that people that start on smaller bikes and move up over time, have a much greater likelihood of staying in the sport for the duration.
As far as I am concerned all of the apparent competition in this area will result in some cool little bikes.
Did you guys get these ? I wish they would update and do it again , this time try and make it look as good as it rode . For fun on the twistys it was a great bike .
You guys think people would pay 7 or 8k if it were a screamer that made 50rwhp, weighed 320lbs wet, and had great suspension?
Probably not but I bet it would have a cult following after they canceled it due to lack of sales lol...
|Its 249.5cc single has dropped its rev-ceiling from 14,000 to 13,500, reducing power to 49.6bhp. Dry weight is just 181lbs. You could pick this thing up and load it into a pickup all by yourself.|
