the two stroke tearaways
teenage kicks with the KH250, RD250 & GT250
In 1970s and 80s Britain, regulations allowed you to ride a 50cc moped, such as a Yamaha FS1E (or 'fizzy') at age 16 and then progress to a proper 250cc bike at age 17.
The choice of 250cc motorcycle at the time was simple, it was between the Kawasaki KH250, Yamaha RD250 or Suzuki GT250.
From three carb-fed cylinders screaming away and the mysterious torque induction, to the full Barry Sheene experience, this film is a review and comparison of three iconic Japanese bikes from the class of 1973.
