Anonymous, 18 July 2014 12:23

A generation of learners grew up riding machines like Yamaha’s RD250LC, while wannabe GP riders could live-out their 250GP fantasies on bikes like Honda’s amazing grey import NSR250SP. And more recently those on the now superseded 33bhp licence restriction were set free on bikes like the CBR250R and Ninja 250. So ...

We can almost hear your sighs from here, but maybe - just maybe - there's more to this scene than meets the eye.

This bike formed the bedrock that allowed Ducati to expand and grow, put money in dealer's tills and funded the development of headline-grabbing models such as the 916. 21 years later we look at the four defining models, and highlight a few good ...
