I don't think it is possible for the USA to have cool toys like that. Quick, some post a pic of a cruiser!

Ultra badass.

Explain, why are these bikes so wanted? Isn't it just a small RD with taller bars? What am I not getting? :)

We always want what we can't have, they were never sold here in the U.S.A. and they have a high fun factor. .

Pipes are much lighter than standard but I don't think make much more power.

Best bang for the buck is to skim the head, optimize the squish and bump up the compression a bit.

Most you gonna get is 55ish hp unless you really wanna drop some cash.

55hp is plenty. We only got the little TDR180 here and even finding them is extremely difficult.

Thanks, I need to go through it to make sure everything is good to go. 55hp was more than my RGV250 was dynoed
