CRM 250R - A Clean Burning Two

Honda in their wisdom created a clean burning 2 stroke that was widely available everywhere but the US. I happened to ride one back in 1997. It was fully street legal and carried all the proper turn signals and brake relays. It had all the snap of the original CR with a slightly higher 6th gear ratio. It came closer to meeting emission reg's than the current crop of closed course 4 strokes and with a lot less weight. I sure wish they would have taken the plunge with that bike. They scrapped that plan along with the best team manager they ever had. I now only ride vintage Hondas and keep to the trials end of the spectrum...
