LOL! Dude, you could bottom the suspension on a KE100 running over a dime in the driveway. 90 feet? Racing?

Honda CRF230L. The ultimate "get on and go" bike. Light, low, air-cooled, and loaded for chores. The 12V system keeps the lights bright and the battery charged. Cleaning is optional. 85mpg. What's to...

That engine would run! Suspension was non-existent, but what do you expect. The battery and charging system was even worse. But, I loved the little beast for what it was.

The STR makes 90% of it's torque from 4-12K rpm. If that's a two-stroke powerband, they'd still make them.
