  7. 1991_RG50gamma_450.
    Is it just me or do these large thin wheels with small discs have an almost comic appearance?!

    Would be a great commuter here in Victoria at only $106 p.a. for rego and TAC.

  8. Saw one of those tempter 450's in the shop a while ago, was a little beat up and had the chopper treatment. Nice looking engine, never saw it running though :(

  9. only the GS1200SS looks worthwile, the rest of the bikes look like they were never intended to be let out of thailand...
     
     Top
  10. Agreed. I struggle to see whats so great about those bikes. Even the GS 1200 SS seems to be nothing unique. They all seem pretty old/weak designs, primarily sold to 'emerging' markets.

  11. Half of em look no worse than the CBR125 or most the shity scooters you see chuging around.

  12. Now this is amusing. A car tyre on the rear along with a beige vomit colored seat and a tiny fuel tank.

    Why?
     
     Top
  13. Because its japan and thats what they are good at building weird and amusing stuff

    And speed demon i did not notice the wheel and disc combo Funny contraptions!! :LOL:

    Something quirky and appealing about these small capacity Japanese weird machines!!

    Especially the grasstracker

  14. Nothing unique :LOL:



    The designs are old for sure,

    the greatness comes from the character, weirdness and practicality.

    Something that most sport bikes dont have nor ever will.


    Especially 250rr's

  15. The GS1200SS was sold in NZ. Gorgeous bike.

    The TU250 volty was sold here, though with a different (better looking) seat and different colours.

    I'd happily put $8000 of my money on a goose 350.
     
     Top
  16. beat me too it. The tu didn't have the volty name here. It was only available between the end of the GN250 and the start of the cruiser (vt250?).

    Yeah I'd go the 350 goose myself, but $8k is a bit much. maybe $6k new. $4k second hand.

    The goose sold in the UK too and possible NZ???

    I think Honda had a 400 v-twin that was more a standard bike than the current vt-400. Would sell well in Aus at the moment.

  17. Would have been one of these

    1986_ls650_savage_450.

    Savage 650. They were sold in Aus for a few years. Good concept, belt drive iirc and a big single in a cruiser, something different, unfortunately the motor suffers from frequent top end problems, oil starvation iirc again. Which would put me off a 450 tempter, which is obviously based on the same design.

  18. Oh NEWSFLASH


    I bought myself a Suzuki vl250, has had the baffle modified and rear seat i unbolted last night, looks slick and sounds like thunder

    PIC IS NOT MINE
    [​IMG]


    Nice big seat for my big arse, grunts along thru the burbs nicely and fun to flick it thru the gears at your leisure, suspension needs adjustment its a little soft so i may just make the front end a little stiffer.

    This bike would be 20% better with a 6th gear

    But im in love with it :cool:
     
     Top
  19. Why would you need 6 gears for your 250 cruiser?
     
     Top
  20. My sister has one of these, the engine feels (and sounds) best at lower revs and at highway/freeway speeds it feels like it's revving a bit hard. A 6th gear would reduce that problem.

    OTOH I'm not sure they have enough power to actually pull taller gearing.
