This series has been run in Italy for the last few years and has been quite popular. They bore the 125 out to 180cc and make some other mods to it to make it more of a 'racer'. We built 3 of these Cup spec bikes here and tested and displayed them, we also made public through this site and the media our idea to run a 1 make series for juniors using these bikes. While there was a lot of interest, very little of it came from the juniors so it died from lack of interest. I think a lot thought the 17k price tag we put on 1 to race it for the series was too much although most had not truly costed the real value of the whole package offered.
