    Not the most enthralling video review, but aside from much the same positive impression of the bike as is usual from reviewers, there's some interesting commentary on the decent improvement in power across the board after some work with a Bazzaz EFI tuner, which the company makes for this model.

    Also of note is that the improvements were to the bike without any intake or exhaust system mods, which given how much breathing a 250 single can actually need, makes sense. If nothing else, it seems to offer a power-up option to owners without needing to spend more than necessary, while keeping the bike externally stock and less likely to get the wrong attention.

    Mentioned in the clip is that there's an upcoming article that will detail the fuelling changes made and results had with the Bazzaz unit, which should make interesting reading.

    Almost more so, the other reason this might be handy to look at is that it could offer a fair indication of how much the new similarly tuned-for-torque/economy 500 twin models might be able to be powered up with similar treatment, given Honda's U.S. claimed 54hp for the non-Euro licence restricted version.
