I like the looks of them. Only thing I dont like about the small 250 size bikes is that you are wringing the neck of the poor thing at highway speeds. I have almost got a buell blast many times because still can ride on the highway and still not a behemoth of a bike. But shit if you like it that is all that matters. Fuel injection would be nice. Be nice to have a bike you can depend on running well all the time.
