    When I started riding 250 2 strokes and 4 cylinder 4 strokes with sky-high rev limits were the go-to thing. From the mid 90’s all the Japanese manufacturers stopped making them in favour of cheaper-to-produce and friendlier-to-learners single or parallel cylinder 250’s. Now thanks to Kawwasaki it looks like they might make a comeback.

    My GSXR250RR revved to 17,000rpm, and I think that was the lowest of the manufacturers. It was also my first adventure bike, taking me up 90 mile beach among other places.

    That looks very nice. Great to see them coming back – much like the trend with cars – bike capacity may now go backwards (smaller cc) and “upwards” (relative power) in terms of performance?

    A GSXR250RR on 90 miles beach?! bet you didn’t stick to 100kph… 😉 🙂

    Is it wrong to want one?
