Blue Haze - a two-stroke miscellany
« on: Jun 17, 2014, 06:18:27 »
Now and then I come across an item that might be of interest to those of us who appreciate the pleasures (?) of two-stroke motorcycles.

Rather than start a multitude of one-post threads I will put them all here.

Contributions welcome!

While walking through Sydney's Chinatown on the weekend I spotted the bike below sandwiched between a mundane collection of scooters.

It was minus all the plastic bits, but is still being ridden.



I am fairly sure it's a Honda NSR250R (MC21) from 1991.

They were never released in Oz, so this would be a grey import.

I gather they put out 45HP standard and 60HP de-restricted.  With a dry weight of 132kg  they could do 185kmh (45HP) and 215kmh (60HP).

Sounds like fun!
