Sat on it at the CW Bike Show last week and was impressed with it, didn't feel small to me at all, I ride a GS500. I'll take the red one:

Why wouldn't they? Kwaka's a good brand. Basically IMO there's no major brand that's crap anymore... Even Harley's done well for themselves.

I love it, I sat on it last weekend... and I'm tempted to trade up! Maybe next year, I think I'l keep the 125cc for another year ... but it looks like a sweet bike. I'm going to look for a ride day to try it out!

You're supposed to encourage the newbies to buy the 250 Shane-O :P

You need to pick a side! You can't scold them for buying Hayabusa's then complain about entry level bikes :)

Nobody else even makes a sport 250, I think hondas is 125

They aren't prevalent at all here in the east coast which is unfortunate.
