I recall having an old, ATC 90 back in the day(the OLD one with the tires molded into the rims), and my friends had the famous ATC110 that had just came out. The 110 the bike that revolutionized and gave rise to the three wheeler phenomenom.
Then, Honda came out with the amazing ATC250R. Manual clutch, suspension, and fast as hell, two stroke powerplant. A mean sum' bitch, to put it plainly. Amazing leap from the 110, which was four stroke, automatic clutch, no suspension and just a *crawler*, whereas the 250R was a balls out racing machine.
But I don't recall anyone I knew ever having a Kawasaki version of Honda's ATC250R, the Kawasaki Tecate 250, which looks to be as far removed from the Kawasaki KLT (kawasaki's first three wheeler) as the 250R was from the ATC110.
Amazing looking machine, and I'd love to have one, now, just to collect and admire. I like the looks better than the Honda 250R, and I'd love to have another Kaw for my collection (I guess you can call two bikes a collection). I see the KIPS powervalve system is on this engine, as well.
Anyone have one of these back in the day, or rode one even? How did they compare to the Honda 250?
