We dont get bad small displacement sport bikes because they dont sell. Plain and simple. In the mid 80s i had an fz-400 it was the trickest bike built at the time in my opinion. The magazines loved them -raved about how well it handeled, stoped and had the best power to wieght ratio of anything on the market. The ultimate track day tool. Only problem was no one bought them. So that was the end of that. Everyone wanted the big pig Ninja 900 back then, or some other no turning, no stoping, more horse power than i could ever use 2 wheel mega displacement wonder of the day. Nothings changed and we wont get em.

I think they need to make more sleek looking bikes like this and the new kawi250.

Schweeeeeet...

Honda CB1100R concept1

I'd buy one in a heartbeat!

Now the 125 on the other hand... I'm a firm believer in tiered licensing, so with regard to that, I'm all for it. As far as being a "sellable" market for it in the US, the Magic 8 Ball says "Not Likely".

That bike is fackin awesome!!!!

Second, if tiered licensing was in effect, the 125/250 market would expand. But not until then. Maybe some lobbyists should get to work.

It would be nice if the top 4 made a 250 series that looked like the bigger bikes.
