125 is a bit too small for street duty IMO, but I'd love to see more 250's from the big four. Would probably save some lives if there were decent looking 250's available here.

i just like using the acceleration and a 125 or 250 can't give me that. i don't do it much at all but when i want a kick in the pants, i want a bike that can give me that

250's would be great for the beginners looking into sportbike riding, but 400's would be AWESOME track day bikes. Just think about how flickable one would be and 55+ RWHP too. Add gas and go. It's too bad Europe and Asia/Aus have these and we don't.

I just can't see many of the these being sold here. How many times do we hear people wanting to upgrade from 250, 500, 600cc? At well over 300lbs with rider that thing wouldn't go anywhere fast. I could only see using it in metropolitan areas where most people currenty use scooters.

If you want something flickable on the track with around 55hp and under 250lbs do a supermoto. Supermoto would probably cost less and I know it would be cheaper to repair after dropping it.
