It's perfect for the man that prefers to spend time admiring his parked bike rather than riding it.

Wow 1/2 hp!!
I thought the whole idea of these bikes was nobody gives a about hp and it's all about handling, novelty and fun?
Comparing hp on these bikes is like a couple of 1st graders comparing their weenie sizes. Don't make a of difference really. Lol

Considering people are buying whole motors at $2400, I think alot of the grommers think about hp (the bike is only MSRP $3200)

I've rebuilt my engine 2x to 181cc about 50% more hp then stock

Slow down there cowboy. We are comparing small displacement bikes.
Do you think this new one will smoke the honda, kind of like a kawi 250/300 smokes the cbr250/300?
I mean I like honda too, but there's no doubt kawi puts a more powerful engine on it's smaller bikes that could really use it.
