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.

Yeah it peaks at 8.07 or something like that.

But as you pointed out it is heavier and also carbed so I doubt it will keep up.

a dry kpipe is 39 lbs heavier than a wet Grom with a full tank of fuel. It ain't going to keep up unless a is on the Grom.

Bike from my youth. This sucker would smoke them both. Lighter, way more hp and they handled surprisingly well. Plus you get the wonderful smell of 2 stroke oil burning. No premix either, they had CCI oil injection.
