Not too sure about the next bike to buy, but has she found a buyer for the Kawasaki? I am looking for a bike to be made 33bhp and that is one of the bikes on my wish list... :burnout:
Looking at the stats for an Impulse it comes in at 172kg dry? I'm 5ft 3 and very petite and have got a Honda VT250 spada (another grey import). It's about 145kg dry and i can get both feet down flat with my legs bent a little. It's very narrow so is very easy to paddle around, touch the floor on a slope etc. I'm not sure exactly how much bhp it churns out, but i had to have it restricted to 33bhp when i first got it, i think it kicks out about 40-45bhp.A great little bike, plenty of poke given the engine size and you can find them quite easily at import dealers.

A friend of mine is going to sell her GSX400 impulse because it is too heavy (she's not very big). She was thinking of an XT225 but i think she'd get bored as she's mentioned that 50-55bhp is the perfect amount of power. She wants it mainly for fun so it doesn't have to be ultra practical. It must weigh no more than 150kg and be manageable by someone a shade over 5'. Any ideas? All i can think of is a 250 stroker like an rgv.
I reckon this would be perfect.
It feels about the same weight as my XBR (claimed 157kg) but mine carries its weight very high so could well be. Cheers for the suggestion of the VT250, I shall mention that. If I remember rightly, they're like baby firestorms aren't they?
Nearly, the vt spada is like a baby bros but with more bhp, the vtr is the one that has a trellis frame like the Duc monster styling, can't remember what the firestorm looks like, sorry.
