They are, but it sounds like you haven't ridden a Aprilia Ride Smart, Yamaha TZ or Honda Ride Smart anywhere, have you?

By "MSR", I assume you mean "MSRC"? So you're saying that it's only fun on a small track? Or maybe you're saying "It's most fun on a small track?"

As a guy who raced TZ and Ride Smart 85s, 125s and 250s for many years, I can tell you that the "small bike, only small track" thing is a falsehood. IMO, I'd say that TWS (Texas World Speedway) was the most fun on a GP 125 and 250 because the bikes carves those fast corners like it's a Velcro razor blade. I never considered a bike, just because it's top-speed challenged, to be less fun on a track with corners. That said, my TZ-250s were capable of speeds similar to 750s and handled far better.

i paid 7,000 drive out for it .it has head lights and bulbs but no wires to them ? the frame is fully polished i thought that was kinda cool .the controls for street lights are there its like they just left the wiring harness off .there are some videos on you tube from europe with street trim i guess it an emissions thing .
