Things must be pretty bad if they are renaming tech they had 35 years ago to make it fresh.
But it's not the same oil cooling system they had 35 years ago.
True, it's about what I would have expected in the 90's if they hadn't gone to water cooling on the GSXR's. The DR650 could have had this over a decade ago.
maKE it a inline 4 !!!
Kawasaki has you covered. I am positively giddy in anticipation of the ZX25-R. If it really comes to the US, and it really stays a 250, I will be blown away. But I’m guessing the chances of this coming to the U.S. are 10-1; the chances of it staying a true 250 if it does are probably half that. We'll see in a week.
OR............... If I may;
I happen have within the stable a 1st gen RGV 250 (VJ21), a 1st gen SV 650S, an R3, plus several generations of the VFR. Had an Aprilia RS250 which was powered by the 2nd gen RGV250 (VJ22) engine. Only unique engine configurations have any interest for me. With current financial pressures on the industry anything other than a dolled up beginner bike hitting the market would be a shock.
But for the bold; renew the exceptional qualities of the RGV series in a modern guise with a 4 stroke V-twin 45-50 hp equivalent. Probably couldn't call it a GSX R but you could call it a SV R.
Doubt it would happen as the SV 650 is at a price point that would negate any upgrading of a smaller machine.
Yes, but I've been waiting 35 years to ride a 250cc inline four.
Surely, many of us were lusting for one of the little I4's after hearing about their availability in Japan. Geez, it's been 35 years already!
I think it could be quite fun around the track, especially if it's in the 50s for hp, stock. In the mid 40s...well then it's competing with the N400 as is, and given the USD forks and twin discs up front I'm guessing it's going to cost a bit more. It *might* even be up in the price bracket for the N/Z650.
Worth it if the frame, suspension and brakes are truly better, but if they're just as soft then I think many would start with the cheaper option.
Looks like the Galdius designer didn't get canned after all?
Im the USA we will get the P. Twin 250... again. $4,599.
We will have to wait another year for a maybe DR200 upgrade or Van Van upgrade.
I'm not sure that this new engine would go with the classics looks of the TU250x but I think it be ok is the Grass Tracker which is basically a tu250x
