Back to the future

In '88 Honda had the NX250, on paper it seems to blast all the modern small adv bikes into the weeds. Where did it all go wrong  :pot:

Was seker n xr250 motor gebaseer op die NX Dominator?

Probleem was, daai tyd was almal so spoilt for choice, hy het nie oorleef ni, vandag sal dit dalk n ander storie wees, maar ook ni, die NX400 het dit glad ni gemaak nie, Falcon of so iets
