Honda Australia’s Moriwaki designed 250cc GP race bike -
the "GP Mono" (MD250H) will be eligible to race in the GP125cc
class this year, according to rule changes approved by
Motorcycling Australia (MA).
Powered by a 4-stroke, liquid-cooled, electric start, single cylinder engine, the GP-Mono is designed for those who are looking for a way to make the step from junior to senior level racing.
In addition, MA have altered the General Competition Rules (GCR’s) in order to allow 15 year olds to compete on Honda’s 250cc 4-stroke race bike, as was allowed for the 125cc 2-stroke.
In addition to local club level competition, national series such as the Australian Superbike Championships (ASC) and MRRDA (Motorcycle Road Race Development Association) are open to competitors who are 15 years or older on the Honda machine.
The GP Mono is available now for $14,990 and is available from selected Dealers including Brisbane Motorcycles, Sydney City Motorcycles (Lane Cove), Redwing (VIC), Motologic (VIC), Honda World (SA) and Honda Shop (WA).
|The MD250H is powered by a modified CRF250X engine.
The four-stroke, single-cylinder motocross based powerplant is housed in a Moriwaki built high specification
twin tube chassis derived from Honda's 125cc Grand Prix machines. USD forks, radial caliper, dry weight around 85kg.
