Sweet sounds of a TZ250

    After about 20 secs the cameraman gets up close and personal to a dude revving out a TZ 250.

    My 2 questions are about this vid:

    1. Why's he revving it so much
    2. Is it a race bike only (ie non-road registerable)
  2. I don't think that IS a TZ-250, I suspect it's a Suzuki RGV, or an Aprilia. It certainly doesn't look or sound like any of the thousands of TZ-series Yamaha with which I was up close and personal many years ago.

    And in the case of this bike, I think it is a race-only machine.

    That said, however, gulp, that bike DOES look a lot like this...

  3. oh oh its expensive :cry: :cry:

    $16,135.71 US (TZ250)
    $8,258.17 US (TZ125)
  4. i reckon it sounds like a tz250, but the swingarm looks like a rs250 one.

    Revving the bike like in the video, it to get the bike up to nice operating temp without clogging the oil up (2t oil works well when warm, glugs when cold),
