  1. EXCELLENT……. awesome entertainment, and outstanding talent.
    Now let’s all sit and wait for the righteous comments about bad motorcycling behaviour and what a poor example he is setting…..and how much his antics destroy the image of motorcycling…..Ha

    Personally, I cant wait to get mine out and go charging through my nearest supermarket…..thats a joke by the way…I’d fall off.
    :o)

    More please.

    • I’ve thought about making my own super-moto style street bike from a CRX450. It just isn’t practical. That engine is a pure race engine. It requires an oil change every 5 hours of engine run time, and a new piston and rings about every 30 hours, and brand new valves (not just an adjustment) every 75 hours of running. That’s a lot of time spent in the garage wrenching, instead of out riding.

      That’s why we haven’t seen a version of this engine (or any of the Japanese big four’s MX four-strokes) in a streetable bike. To make this engine acceptable to consumers for on-road use Honda would have to make the engine more robust. That would add weight, and destroy the entire concept of a really lightweight single cylinder four-stroke.
