And if the 599cc ZX6r's are going to drop in value when the new 636's start rolling out that's good for people wanting cheaper ZX6r's for track riding. But how does that relate to the 636's at all? Same premise here with the 300r's. Sure it'll cheapen 250r's and you'll see a surge of people buying them. It doesn't directly have anything to do with the 300's though.

LOL Or if they required you to keep the awful IRC tires that are going to come stock on the 300r's . That is one of the best modifications you can do to a current gen 250r is throw those shit tires away and get decent tires.

Ah, but they can. Supersport is generally I4s to around 650cc in most club racing orgs. You can club race 636s against 600s, you cannot do the same in the AMA or WSS, etc.

So 6.2 and 4.8L V8s are smaller than a 2.3L I3? I'll try to remember that.

I said mainstream.

IMO sticking a big engine into a frame doesn't count. If it does, don't forget the guy who was sued by Rolls Royce for badging his bike as a Roller after building it around a 27L Merlin engine.

Yeah, Or the dodge tomahawk with the Viper motor... it isn't really a bike since it doesn't exactly have only 2 wheels but its SUPPOSED to be a bike.

Viper: Good morning, gentlemen, the temperature is 110 degrees.
Wolfman: Holy shit, it's Viper!
Goose: Viper's up here, great... oh shit...
Maverick: Great, he's probably saying, "Holy shit, it's Maverick and Goose."
Goose: Yeah, I'm sure he's saying that.

They're 'mainstream' bikes heree. I have seen quite a few on the road.

I can say I have seen three or four Boss Hoss motorcycle things in person, and the only Rocket III I have seen was in a dealership.
