I don`t agree , honda created the sport , more money in utility machines ? I don`t think so ! Now , suscuki did make the first quads , but there motors could not compete very long with the other two ! They all were afraid to be sued , only yamaha had the balls to continue , i`m glad they did !ope:ope:ope:I won't get into a "which one is better argument" but I will say that the 250R would most likely not been near as good without the Kawasaki Tecate! In the early years Kawasaki was the only one that manufactured an atv that was competetive to the 250R threewheeler. Competition improves the breed. IMO Honda stopped making the 250R because they were the ones hit the hardest by the lawsuits and the sales of utility machines were really taking off. They went where the money was and dropped the less profitable models. Suzuki sold the quadracers for a few more years until they stopped production. It's a shame it all went down that way. If the other three had not dropped their high performance quads Yamaha would not have been able to get away with selling the same unimproved Banshee for so many years. If the big four had continued to battle for the top spot in the high performance market we all would have been able to enjoy some awesome 2 stroke quads!
