I think they're going with one frame probably and as I said I'd go for a 250 so that space would be nicely filled out with a bigger engine.

If the price for the RE GT is what has been reported, even with 28hp, the thing looks better, cooler than the tiny 2 stroke. Those little babies look like wannabe Honda 150s from the 1960s.

I have to agree with HAP. I'll take the RE.

This can't be right, is it?

A little more plastic molding and you have...well...a faster moped.

I dunno, I think 'd prefer the Janus. I have a thing for those really old bikes, and if they did it in a 250 I'd buy one right now.

There is a fine line between "hobby", and "mental illness"
