    There are loads of articles about this ZX-25R, so this one might be the real deal. Can I have a retro version please?

    Fingers crossed, we have gone from the CBR250RR blasphemous blow bag with a chook bike engine in it, to a 4 cyl from Kawasaki. I bet it won't have snorkels or the tiny front discs.

    Surely not! With all the tech these days and just simply comparing it to a modern 1000, I would expect 55 - 60 bhp at the crank. 39 would be very disappointing. Maybe the plan is to leave a little up their sleeve for later releases. Assume that there is a release and then later ones.

    If it is real and they are sold here, the question will be how bad the Australia Tax lumped onto the price will be

    I just want the engine out of a crashed one to put in a ZXR. That could be a good sideline for me shipping engines to Aus.

    reported 60hp from inline 4, now that is worth getting excited about , I am with blair, wonder if we can fit a crashed one into an older A model chassis
