Suzuki might be joining the party...

Ok, so it's all speculation at this point, but wouldn't it be nice if Suzuki joined the 250 party? Let's see; Ninja 250R, CBR250R and maybe a GSX-R250 someday. Seems pretty doable, especially considering Suzuki already makes this: http://www.visordown.com/motorcycle-...ope/16693.html

That bike doesn't look like much compared to the Ninja 250 or CBR250, but it would be awesome to have Suzuki and Yamaha come out with a GSX-R250 and R2(?) I think Kawasaki has proven how popular small displacement motorcycles are even in this country.

Completely agree. Boggles me why the rest of the Big 4 haven't jumped on the bandwagon.

It took Honda this long to figure it out. Hopefully it doesn't take the other guys that long.

Like most business decisions these days, I'm sure the reason they haven't decided to build a Ninja 250 beater for the US market revolves around money and ROI.
