Did anyone see the Retro Reboot feature in Classic Mechanics magazine last month ? 145bhp/145Kg square-four fuel-injected two-stroke. I've cleared a space in my garage already... [-o<

Some UK rags try and pass off unlikely artists impressions as leaked factory info regarding a definite new model. Not this one, they're 100% fantasy, just dreaming out loud really. Check out Kar's website.

If I win the Euro Millions, I will commission one - in red

Well they now saying that the environmental saviour (the diesel) is now the devil really, so I would like to think of a world inhabited by brand new KR500s and perhaps a couple of Wartburgs for when it is cold or wet 8)

Ohhhhh lovely, if only....CMM said back in 2015 IDP Moto would actually manufacture a batch of Kars re-design of the retro rebooted RD350LC but no mention of that for quite some time...shame as im sure they would find buyers.
