Its not a 190 but surely is fast. This is a great bike for racing or trail riding and has the extra smooth power from the 4 valve head.Nice bike. How does this compare to the 190 engine wise? I love the 190 and im just waiting on some funds to make a purchase. I will be strickly trail riding and pit riding with it. I wanna turn it into a trail beast. Having sold my Rm250and everything else, i just want something to screw around on. Its a tough decision. If i can save a few hundred bucks then that would be great.
