No, this is not a BMW R26, but a near identical copy made in Japan. If you are going to copy something, it may as well be one of the best lightweight designs.

Japanese replica or not, there's a high "cool" factor in this machine. They had me at "push rods", especially with the unique kick start & overall engine/tranny design & shaft drive...oh yeah, I'd ride it,...without shame.

Another good reason to boycott Japanese made products. So long as Asians think that knocking-off other people's designs is an acceptable way of doing business, no original works will be safe. All because they feel they can produce great products cheaper.
