Megelli Coming to the US with 250cc Bike Megelli Motorcycles 125r1 560x310

You might remember that we teased you last month with the petite sportbike of Megelli, that we’d never get to see here in the states. Well, all that has changed now. Megelli has confirmed with Asphalt & Rubber that a 250cc version of its road bike is scheduled to land on American soil soon.

The Megelli 250r will be distributed through QLINK, which means you can order it from the convience of your computer screen. No word on shipping times yet, as Megelli is still waiting for the green light from the EPA (how much smog can a 250cc motor make?), but the 250r is expected to sell for $3,500, with another $220 to ship it to your doorstep.

With the increase in displacement, also comes an increase in horsepower. Megelli lists the 250r as making 16 horsepower. You can place your order here with QLINK.

    What!?

    A single cylinder sportbike in the US???

    FINALLY! I better go count up my change jar.

  4. @skadamo Yup. It looks great. Wish it had more power though. http://bit.ly/1sFUk5

  5. A single-cylinder sportbike is controversial just in the name. Even though the 9.5:1 compression screams gas mileage and reliability, experienced riders would miss that 6th gear. It’s main competition, the Ninja 250R, revs over 7k rpm at highway speeds, hitting its max just over 100mph. This Megelli 250R would likely struggle on the highway, and I’d be impressed if it could hit 80mph. With the same displacement, a Ninja 250R makes more than twice the power… and is right around the same price range. A cheaper competitor would be the Hyosung 250R, with performance specs similar to those of the Ninja. How can Megelli expect to compete in such a market?

    By far the prettiest 250 on the market, but 16hp? It’s not gonna last long on the U.S. market. What I wanna see is an inline 3 0r 4 250! :D
