A few days ago we were talking about the new YZF-R3 so I looked it up... 321cc LC 4 valves per cylinder twin. Top speed. Drum roll please.. 112mph..Yikes.. I guess that will keep up with a ninja....300 OMM. My wife and I bought her a V-star 250 last fall.. SWEET ride.. Even that crazy thing will do 85mph... @ 21hp. How many hp does that R3 have ????????? OMM.

Yea it's a cool bike. I like the small bikes that aren't just bottom-tier budget beasts. I still just wish someone would bring back a ridiculous 250cc 4-cylinder road racer like the early nineties Hondas and Kawasakis. Those little motors put out more horsepower than this new Yamaha (which kills most of it's competition in the power war). Not to mention better suspension, chassis, and brakes - and this is comparing something from 1990 to something from 2015 - lol!
