what's MSRP on those? And would you do the leg work for me in Australia to import one to the US, Felix? I really, really dig it... I only wish the compression was a little higher, but I'm sure we can change that. :D

Do you guys have the Honda CBR 125R in AUS or the US? It's pretty popular in Canada, but very entry level and you constantly see nearly new ones for sale by quickly bored owners.

for those in the states, visit here to find a dealer:

Merelli said the US version will most definitely be a 250 single.... And should be here in June, they're just getting EPA stuff worked out. I'm thinking will be low on HP, but quite nice and high on torque...

hahaha I just called up action orlando, I'm gonna go take a look at them tomorrow. They just got some in stock and Ray the guy I talked to said they're selling like crazy....3 year warranty and they have every part to the bike right there in the shop. Its something to look at. He wanted $1,050 down and thats expendable, real nice guys I may have a bike tomorrow but I wanna really check out the quality first. Plus its a new company and they havent been thoroughly tested yet.

What do you guys think?

I'd be nervous about quality. I just got rid of my Honda scooter and it was a great little bike, but there are countless small machines in the scooter market from lesser known, often Chinese built, mostly 50 and 125 cc's that literally have parts fall off as you ride down the road. They are considerably lower priced compared to the more established makers. What is the MSRP on this little rocket?

anywhere from $2700 - $3300 I've found, depending on the dealer...

And Boar, that's why you just lock tite the whole bike, super screamin deal, and no worries!

Yeah I was told $3,500 OTD give or take a few bucks for credit checks and stuff. They told me they wouldnt mind me taking a test drive on a model they have just for that, even said they'd go with me, for a couple reasons A: so i dont steal the thing, B: Any emergencies, and C: they said they like to ride with their customers, get out of the shop and have fun for a few minutes....WHAT DEALER DOES OR SAYS THAT????????????? Much nicer and honest than the kawi dealer and they dont have a 37 person waiting list lol.

But it all comes down to quality, I've sat on a 250, I've ridden my friends '07 numerous times so I know it great quality. One of the only things keeping me back is the waiting list, and the lack of communication with the dealer, he's an asshole, but I LOVE the Kawi 250r.

I'm like a confused little girl right now lol.

Yeah all the bikes for sale are up north and shit I cant take a road trip right now ahahaha. I'd love a Special Edition! My heart is set on green anyways...hey Z 999 posts!! lol

This recession is crazy, I'm glad it hit now when I'm old enough to understand whats going on and where we might be headed. Its affected alot of people which is sad, I do see activity though like spring break and such but in a few weeks it'll all be dead until July 4th.

Lock Tite? Sound idea Spooph. Around here we're all Duct Tape Engineers, but that would make for a cleaner look!
