Im content w mine... and it has dual front brakes

Nice thing about the 250s is owning the slim profile and lines vs trying to look like something larger

That bike has such a "slim" profile that I cannot see anything in the image you attached, Cali!

Is the spec-sheet correct? A single-cylinder? Is the bike smooth on the acceleration? What about idling? Seems like a single-cylinder would be pretty rough on the crank?

Hehe, you'd be rocking it at a very, very, slow pace.

Horsepower (bhp): 16.2 bhp
Torque (Ft Lbs): 17.8 lbs
I read it has a top speed of about 65 mph.

I'll stick with my kawi 250r, which looks awesome, tyvm.

Jeez, that means you would have a tough time keeping pace with some scooters. At least, you cannot get ticketed for riding on the Interstate. You would never break the 70mph to receive a ticket.

Not to jack the thread, but I sure would like to see these as starter bikes here in the U.S.

It is the Yamaha YZF-R125 sold in the U.K.

Maybe a CBR 125 for us red guys. It sure seems like even in the car category us americans get screwed in the smaller package/better handling performance category.

More models are offered because of tiered licensing. If I'm not mistaken, some states have such tiered programs too. I want the mini-me of my wr250x

Don't quote me, but if memory serves me correct, in some european countries you must start on a 125 when you get your motorcycle license, then after one year you can graduate up to the 250 or 600. They make you start out on something smaller with less power to reduce accidents and deaths. Actually works quite well from what I understand.

the RS6 Avant with a V10 putting down ungodly HP on the road

and my wagon is still sold in europe as a 300 SRT Touring looking just like my magnum yet Americans dont even get the magnum. so much for a domestic.


we get screwed if it has a motor and tires.

Period!

holy , a reply!

"Ciao Matt,
thanks a lot for your support.
Regarding the future of CaffeTriplo...
I can only suggest to contact VENTO (good luck with it!)
and check with them.
At this stage I'm also not aware of what are the plans.

Meanwhile enjoy your SV!

Best,
Nic"


doesnt sound hopeful
