I WANT! I love my race 250R, but would love an engine that is more of a match for the Ninjettes and KTMs ultralights. If the can keep the sweet handling characteristics of the CBR250R, I want one.

It looks like Japan has done away with the 250cc licensing tier so anything 51 to 400cc is the same. If they are going to start with a clean sheet, Honda might as well start with whatever displacement up to 400cc that they need to make it to the top of the Euro A2 limit.

2 stroke engine burns oil, so there is no way that it'll meet today's stringent emissions standards.

Any news as to whether this is a 2 or 4 cylinder? I believe Honda's old 250RR was 4 cylinder and could way outperform any other 250 at the time. (Although I doubt CMRA would let me race any 4 cylinder bike in the Ultralightweight category, no matter the cc's.)
