Hammer that throttle with an awesome sound but get no where fast.......

Looks very agressive. I like it. I think it's better looking than my old 09. I'm sure the rear tire is still tiny. 250s are really good city bikes if you aren't hungry for power. It has new wheels and exhaust. I wonder if it's got the same motor... The previous generation motor was good.

It's better to ride a slow bike fast than fast bike slow. I learned a lot owning that bike.

Yeah, it's called Supermoto - 250lbs bikes with 50+ RWHP

Indeed - Took Book in College and when a kid was into us for over $1k, he gave this up as payment - We beat the SHIT outta this bike and left it behind the frat house covered in weeds when I graduated
