  1. I had race in Europe with this bike in 1982 and it was an amazing bike when compared to Maico and KTM 250 cc .
    When it appeared on the market it was the end of most european motocross brands.
    The bike was not the disaster described, the engine when new was really fast
    . In the european market it was a big successs.
    I did my best season with that bike and for that reason Ibought it again in 2013.

    The european red& white version is probably more beautiful and run faster 🙂

  2. Rick Johnson came within a hair of winning the national championship on this bike against Donnie Hansen on his super trick works Honda.
