I thought they were 'only' 80bhp? [8D]
Wonder if primary drive is any better than when Maico were making them?
490 MX with 'only' 63bhp would crack the rollers off chains pretty regular (I had mine 8yrs)
I would still love to have one, that has to be stupid scary fast (probably only weighs about 25~30lbs?
Just went back for another look. Clutch looks bigger and probably gear primary drive?
