  2. Like the way the frame is in line with the swing arm. That’s attention to detail.

  3. Sounds like a good powered low weight bike 160kg wet 98hp sounds very good for the road

  4. Dump the road kit and maybe a few carbon bits and 150kg with 100hp will scare lots of big bike riders on a track day.

  10. You have to be lightweight to ride that.
     
  11. doubt it will have 100bhp. big ask for a reliable 660 twin, let alone complying to euro 5 bollox

  12. Thats me out then :( I'm not far off the bikes weight o_O
     
  13. One of the reason I have never used a 250 2 stroke on track. In theory, it would be awesome! In practice, I’d counter steer and lift the thing off the ground!!
     
  14. Why not make it 650? Eligable to race then.
     
  15. why not make it a small capacity v4 screamer? not alot of that going on these days....

  16. I like the idea of making a smaller capacity Aprilia race bike, but why the configuration and power - weight?

    Is it even aimed at a popular and worldwide class?

    Why not a 600 aimed at supersport or something?

    Kinda feels like a good opportunity missed to me
