No worries, I figured as much and likewise my statements were directed to the audience in general and didn't come across that way.

I don't have any political or environmental agenda like a few folks do on this mc forum. I LOOOOOOOVE nature and to this day my best job was volunteering at the zoo shoveling shit for the animals, including the elephants. This tends to be the beginning of my hiking season as it's generally too wet to ride out in the forest or any long distance, but I've got mil issue Gore-Tex clothing that keeps me warm and dry while out in nature and the forests are still incredibly beautiful this time of year. But the fall of the world started looooooong before I started driving or riding and my meager contribution to pollution is a drop in the bucket, kinda like my almost worthless votes in the political realm.

Gah, I got caught up. That Kawasaki looks super fun, but oooph, that color.... I used to have a little Ninja 250 that I really enjoyed and I'm sure this would be even more fun!

So far, from what I have read, not coming to the USA. Figures.
If you ever see a Japenese motorcycle wrecking yard they are full of all kinds of what we would consider 'high performance' little two strokes. They chop them, extend them and put all manner of stuff on them.
The 'playing music' using the engine and clutch is 'interesting' as well.

If I can get down to your neck of the woods maybe you can show me some of your favorite hikes. I'm fairly certain that they are not as insane as some of mine, but that may be a good thing.

Yes and it's made of Carbon fiber, as are the frame, swing arm, and wheels. The engine has electric power valves and apparently, twin contra-rotating cranks!? Here is the website:

On their web site you can see the engine. One cylinder up and forward, the other down and forward. Makes for a nice compact package. Those are pretty cool!Found some 'Tube' videos.

That first video is great and all with the engine in the background, but all I heard was them discussing Italian food!

Two strokes. Too bad I didn't get that many miles on one...

How does a n A/C RD350 bottom end mated to a LC350 top end sound? An engineer in North CArolina built one and had to change the gearing to keep from flippin' over! Wheelies in all three gears. (oh *uck yea....pardon my heart on).

That's worth dying for, almost. On a steel horse....I ride....hehe.
