The Gt250R looks cool, but if you want a sure thing go with the Ninja 250. Then Ninja 250 has not changed much since 1988. The parts are out there to replace anything you might break. The Hyosung will not have any parts easily attainable or as easy as the Ninja. They have the same power output it looks, but with 50lbs more weight the GT250R will be slower. Stick with the sure thing, unless you want to try something new. Keep us posted if you go with the GT250R.

Gabe did a review of the GT650. Seemed rather favorable.

No, no your both wrong American stuff is cr*p, everyone knows that. Just look how backward our manufacturing is, all we can do is make the most advanced and powerful fighters, tanks, bombers, ships, space shuttles, sattilites, communications equipment, submarines, computers, helicopters, missles, unmanned survailance aircraft, cutting edge medical research........what do we know about technology



Yup, 'murican stuff is junk alright. Look at all them 20 and 30 year old American pick-ups and Harley's running around. If you could find a 30 year old Japanese car that hadn't rusted into the ground I'm sure it would be WAAAYY better than them old U.S. barges...

Suzuki should know all about technology being stolen. In 1961 east german Ernst Degner was on the verge of winning the 125c.c. championship for MZ motorcycles, when he decided it was time to defect to the west, well, he not only did just that, but he took with him all of the tunning secrets from MZ and Walter Kaaden, who had perfected the expantion chamber technology, and sold them to Suzuki, who went on to win the 1962 championship using expantion chambers and tooling that was identical to the MZ stuff!

What goes around comes around.

Default KAWASAKI ZX2R: 250cc 4-stroke, 4 cylinder, 4 valve per cylinder sportbike.

Actually there is another choice, if you could get your hands on one and don't mind only having it for race track fun. It's only been sold overseas and it's the KAWASAKI ZX2R a 250cc 4-stroke, 4 cylinder, 4 valve per cylinder sportbike.



I believe it may be the fastest 4-stroke 250, high revving 4 cylinder 4 valver ever made. They stoped making them in the mid-nineties



Plust the redline is way up there something like 18,000 to 20,000 rpm.



Theres a photo of one for sale in Australia at this link. http://www.bikenut.com.au/bikes.php?id=208



You might try looking up KAWASAKI ZX2R under E-bay motors or google it for more info.



I think Honda made a CBR 250 which is along the same lines 250cc 4 stroke, 4 valve per, 4 cylinder.



[b]Anybody out there know anything about these bikes?
