What we have instead is the upcoming 150cc Gixxer and the GW250 Inazuma. Yes, if you have something special for the ‘S’ logo and are out in the market for a small capacity commuter bike, you can have the GS150R, or one of the two variants of 125cc SlingShot or the 112cc Hayate.

According to a leading news site “The time needed for a man to fall in love at first sight is 8.2 seconds, scientists claim. The longer a man’s gaze rests on a woman when they meet for the first time, the more interested he is. If it last just four seconds, he may not be all that impressed.

The trouble with going full Monty with MotoGP-speced road-legal supersports is that you won’t enjoy it for long. Obviously, when you spend a sizeable numbers of the hard earned, you expect it to be a long-term investment.
