Can someone clarify street use of this bike in the US? Obviously it's fine for typical street use; but what are the laws regarding use on highways? Highways, meaning two lane 55-mph US/State Highways here in the central US?

Thanks!

Looks like alot of possibilities with this thing.
A FI minibike, lots of hopup parts for these type engines.
Just will need some sort of FI manipulator to make it work.
Might have to get serious

it looks to be a perfect bike to have around for anything. It will probably be tons of fun and they will sell a shitload of them....hell it might even be an instant classic like the Rukus!

Like. Want. But I'm curious .... is this a bored-out (and/or stroked) MiniTrail engine or an all-new design? Pushrod or OHC? 40 years ago a CB or CL125 was a real motorcycle.

Now this is awesome!

It won't replace my Ninja 250 but holy hell with some mild knobbies I would run the hell out of that thing! All it needs is a milk crate
