It may sound like a bad Polish joke, but I assure you it's not. It's a little fact that I didn't know, despite being in the motorcycle business for many years: Poland has an active motorcycle manufacturer. And the manufacturer has been in existence for several decades.

There you go, learned something today...

The company is called Romet Open link in a new window, and they presented several of their motorcycles at the EICMA 2009 exhibition, and one of them is the 249 Division.



Romet-249-Division

As the name implies the 249 is a 250cc motorcycle. The bike has 2 air-cooled cylinders, 2 x 26mm carburetors, and a 5 gears gearbox.

The 144 kg motorcycle looks a bit like a Suzuki Gladius. The bike has been built based on cost, you can see that very quickly. But on a whole, the motorcycle looks like it will last a long time.

Most items you'd find on European, Asian or North American motorcycles are optional here, meaning the cost need to be kept down. Side stand, center stand, electronic display, LED turning lights, etc are all optional equipment.

The front wheel uses a double disc brake, with a diameter of  320 mm and caliper 2 pistons, the rear has a single disc brake of 200 mm.

An interesting bit was on the display boards on their stand. The bike exists in a 125 cc, version. You just remove all the "2" in the above specs ; 1 cylinder, 1 carburetor... but the rest (frame, wheels) remains the same.

I've not been able to find any price, or any other info (I lost most of my press kits), but I can not imagine that this motorcycle should cost more than €2000....
