It is going to have 50hp and we will not see it in the US. The heyday of hi tech quarter liter sportbikes was 20 years ago and while the ZX25 is super cool, it is mostly made for countries with...

I'd say, especially stock, the handling and performance of a twin matches the speed of the car. The handling and performance of a 86/BRZ greatly outmatches the speed of it's motor, making it boring....

I've had a KTM 450SM and a 625 SMC, lots of fun, but not what I would call comparable to the 86/BRZ, like the question asked by the OP. Perhaps an LS swap car with lost of grunt off the bottom...

So, again, I'll say it (WR250X) is like the 86. Great chassis. Handling, brakes, but low on grunt and power. Have to keep corner speeds high and work on technique, because a big engine won't help you...

You cant go on displacement alone. A 500 or 600cc twin might be appropriate, but perhaps not an inline 4. when I first started visiting Taiwan bikes over 125cc were banned. When they dropped the ban...

Yeah, I guess its all in what you do. If I did auto-X, track days or raced it would be a different story. The Miata used to be lively, now I have to go very fast in turns to get it tail happy. Super...

I put very sticky tires on my Miata, it sucks now.

The 86 is very playful with the Prius tires.

Bigger, wider, stickier, tires probably make it feel way underpowered.

Balance is everything.

I swear that is where Ford got the idea.

8-10 years ago my buddy had a kit car called a Nobel. It had a Ford 3.0 V6 with twin turbos, mid engine. It was insane.

Heck, my 3.5 twin turbo Transit work van is just about as fast as my 86 in a straight line.

But in reality the 86 is magic in corners. Amost nothing else compares, it's pure.

I made my 86 feel much faster.

I purchased a Tacoma TRD Pro last week.

278 HP never felt so boring, the 86 is an absolute rocket in comparison.
