There was one for sale here that I test rode a couple years ago. From what I've gathered that's one of only TWO to ever enter the country. What an awesome bike. In fact, inspired by that test ride I started to fantasize with a 900SS Ducati.

I guess I'm not doing too bad now, but I still fancy those "simpler" air cooled, grunty bikes

Well, the XT660X is actually a better base than the MT-03 to build a corner scalpel...

It just needs $3000 in suspension to get there


Sad truth is, the SZR didn't succeed where it counts, sales. It's replacement is much more of a commuter/urban bike.

On that note, they put the good stuff on the WR250R/X. Adjustable suspension, inverted forks, aluminum frame, good brakes, etc... They could do the same for this lil thing....
The WR is also a dirt bike (they've had inverted forks for awhile now) and costs about 1.5-2 times as much as I would expect the 250 to cost

Edit: Missed prior response...

Good grief I would love a street legal version of that. I'm sure it would cost a bazillion dollars even if they detuned it and dumbed it down.

$54K for that one

Can I have one without the carbon fiber (make it fiber glass), billet parts, and make it 200lbs and 40hp for $8K? lol

OMG THAT THING LOOKS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

It may be my Yamaha fever (currently obsessed with R6 and R1) but this 250 looks WAY better than the Ninja or CBR 250s. It actually looks like a R6 and R1 had and gave birth to this creature.

Unfortunately that is a pretty good photochop of an R6 with some deceving side decals. A sweet bike, but not what it would look like in real life.
