I think there is room in our market for an Asian 300cc retro, I'm surprised it has not been tried yet. Hope it makes it here and if it does that it comes in less then 5 grand.

As far as parts go, you can see from my Sig line that I ride a Buell and a Daelim so it should be obvious that I'm a glutton for punishment.

The 300cc retro has a SYM engine so it should be reliable. If it's priced significantly below the 300cc vespa, it will be in a class of its own. I'd sure give it a look.

When the temp starts dropping, wide is not such a bad thing. I wonder if KYMCO will bother sending it to the states as it does not seem their last crop of 300's were big sellers.

Motorcycle Daily says it was a "pretty big guy". Might be a typo, probably meant, "pretty big lie ". If correct, we don't need no stinking cbr300 with an 87 mph 150 in town.
