 Welcome to the second issue of Two Fifty Magazine. Well, we said it would evolve, and evolveit has! This issue of Two Fifty takes on anew look, and a new, albeit familiar, mis-sion: small bikes with big appeal. Whereasmost magazines focus on big bore, high costbikes, we focus on the most versatile, mostprevalent, and (we think) most exciting of rides, the small displacement motorbike. Take a global snapshot of the motorcyclemarket and you realize that not only aresmall displacement bikes the most popularmotorcycles, but in many markets (notably parts of Asia and India) they are the mostprevalent form of any motorized transpor-tation. In fact the Honda Cub, coming in ata whopping 50cc, is the most popular mo-torized vehicle the world has ever known(60 million, and counting). Of course, smalldisplacement bikes are not only about utility,and economy, although that is certainly trueof the class in general. When it comes tomoving the spirit, these bikes run with thebest of them. The class leader in North America, the Ka- wasaki Ninja 250R has better accelerationthan all but the most powerful cars, it hasbetter fuel economy than any hybrid car onthe market, and can cruise all day on any road and highway this continent has to of-fer. If you happen upon one in the twist-ies, where motorcycles are really meant tobe, in the right hands it can keep up withjust about any other bike, regardless of class.It’s a great beginner’s ride, sure, but it’s alsothe consummate rider’s motorcycle, the pureride.
