It's like the market for premium sub-600cc bikes is pretty much non-existent these days. Bikes like the CBR250R/RR, Suzuki Across, original Ninja 250, the various grey-import 400cc bikes and etc. They don't make these awesome, often 4 cylinder bikes anymore. Why? I know the demand is always more size and more power but it sucks! Anyone who has owned any of these type of bikes knows how much fun it is to be so readily able to push it to its limits, as well as the lower cost of running and general increased ease of riding which comes with a smaller bike. Will they ever make them again? Will i HAVE to get a 600+ if i want a nicer/faster bike that isn't 40 years old? Will there be a resurgence of these bikes as petrol prices go higher and cities become more crowded? I am thinking modern day interpretation of the VFR400 and CBR250RR. Not these pansy-ass single cylinder fairing-uped scooters that pass for 250cc sports bikes these days. To that end - are there any bikes that fit this bill? Like the Aprillia RS250 etc?
