Ever seen a GSXR 50 (no, not mis-typed)

I know absolutely nothing about these, but thought it was cool and had to share. I'm going to see what I can find out about them now.

Awesome. I've never seen one of those, but there used to be a guy that came around our Florida hangout every once in a while with an Aprilia RS50. That thing was so awesome.

They were only made(here) a couple of years... it was a 4 stroke 50 so the YSR's were murdering them.

There was a guy on CL that was selling one for $500 about 4-5 years ago.

I knew about the GSXR 50, but I didn't know they were stateside. Everything we had in 600 and 750 cc , Japan had in 400. Little 400 RR's with gull wing swing arms.. Expensive gems. :( wish we for that stuff over here.
