    Aprilia RS125 with a CR500 motor would be nice.

    and yeah, the NSR250 motor is a piece of cake to get an extra 15-20 hp out of if its an earlier model. wire snip and not much else (from memory maybe jetting? forget, has the details) will get you 60hp at the wheel.... still want one but they're so much rarer than RGVs
    “Crashing is shit for you, shit for the bike, shit for the mechanics and shit for the set-up,” Checa told me a while back. “It’s a signal that you are heading in the wrong direction. You want to win but crashing is the opposite. It’s like being in France when you want to go to England and when you crash you go to Spain. That way you’ll never get to England!” -- Carlos Checa

By the way, out of the RGV, KR1, NSR or TZR 250, which engine has the most potential for horsepower increase?
      Why bother when you get a frame for nothing with a NSR/RGV/KR-1/TZR
      RGV is the easiest to get HP out of with bolt on stuff you go to 65HP, NSR has difficult to rebuild cranks but a ideal 54 X54.5mm format, TZR 3XV is the prettiest which leaves the humble KR-1, with parallel twin and a balance shaft has the most potential for HP. really good grunter engine. Crank is the weak point but can be fixed. Think a reliable 70HP at the wheel would be doable with a 11,500 peak

        geez you're right - i'd always thought the nsr had the same 56x50.6 bore and stroke as the rest of them.
        i have to have one...

          So it's art that's made to make you think

          Your RS125. Or my RS250.

          6 exhausts? I'm glad you work with numbers hehehe.
