55 Hp. How does that compare to current YZ 426 or 520 RFS??

Seperate cylinder / gearbox oil. Who says Cannodale was too innovative now? :eek:

IF it really weighs 225, and IF it starts easier than a yamaha, i predict everyone will have to have one. maybe it'll make ktm 400's easier to find.

It should be a great bike even if it weighs 235-240; my guess at the actual wet/no gas weight. Still a featherweight for a 4 stroke.

I think the scales in Japan must work differently than they do over here.

Add 10lbs for fluids, 12lbs for a full tank of gas, and your at 247 lbs ready to go! That's only 10lbs heavier than a YZ250!

When it comes to ultimate power-to-weight ratios and reliability, Honda's tough to beat. Witness the S2000 (first stock car with over 100hp/liter?), and the CBR600. They're claiming the best p/w ratio among mx bikes. Awesome!

That was one of my first thoughts (besides being absolutely stunned, amazed, in awe...)

I am thinking that it may be perspective playing tricks. Normal size pipe on a SMALL bike looks big?

Kind of like your wife having small hands making your .......... well ...... you get the idea :D
