IoM TT racers        

interesting point of comparison there.

The BSA Gold Star, which was a perennial roadracing and TT winner (and still is in
vintage competition), had 40 hp at the crank and weighed about 450 lb. - the Ninja
has 38 hp at the crank and weighs about 100 lb. less. No wonder about the
similarities.

Of course, the Goldie looks a tad better, and I doubt the Ninja has ever been entered
in MX and observed trials, as the Goldie was. On the other hand, the Ninja does not
vibrate your eyes out either!
