Less and less are the special or cafe racer on bikes with 2-stroke engine.
But in brazil where small displacement are among the most prevalent it is easy to find that kind of work. Bike light and easy to drive, like this Yamaha RD 135 made lighter than that in the standard version as the use of aluminum and with more power and evil all taking inspiration from the past.
