They want to bring the bike over to the US to give people another entry level option

Good. It's about time the US riders had more small bike options. I just wish we had slightly larger options--350-400cc. They had bikes over here that size in the '70s.

I'm afraid there's some silly reason why the bike is just under 250cc's (249.4!) instead of a better size, like 350 or 400. Probably has to do with import rules, tariffs, etc.

If it was a 400 I could see it stealing a lot of sales from the Ninja 250, but with less power I think it will mostly get sales from its cool new look.

And why ABS on such a lightweight bike?
And the fuel tank is only 3.4 gallons versus the Ninja's 4.8 g
