Maybe one day if a "R" model is released it`ll suit smaller new riders

...as per a page back Chris, no torque and wants to be revved a bit!

Whilst they were busy on my bike I took their demo 390 for the morning...very impressive little motor and it ran away from my mates KLR650 easily both through the gears as well as top end, it cruises quite easily at 140 and sees 160kmh without problems but definitely needs a few tweaks in order to be called an adventure bike as with the 17/19 mag rims it sits very low to the ground and this demo already had a cracked bash plate!

Drove to the farm yesterday, youngest son, now 15, who didn't show the avid interest in bikes as his elder brother, took the CR250 for his first ride, coming from 50cc, 80PW, XR125 current, yesterday rode the DT 180 and then with a little persuasion took the 250, didnt want to leave it alone after that.

The tracks were brilliant and it would soon become a nice and warm day in the bush
