ExactlyI have always liked small displacement motorcycles for both road and off road. The disadvantages are over-stated and the advantages understated. I rode a KTM 200 for years and could smoke most people on the trails or in cross country races, regardless of the size bike they rode. I have had big displacement road bikes (still have one) but for most riding I prefer the lighter weight of my small displacement bike. I never find keeping up with people, passing safely, or the any other perceived disadvantages to be an issue. I think the "need" for big displacement and horsepower is mostly an ego trip.
