Seems to be a popular mod in Asia. A whole lot of work for even firing impulses.

sounds like a mini Ducati. Hopefully, the rider will live long enough to enjoy it. Note (way too) close encounters at 2:33, 2:43, 2:55. Riding way too fast/careless in those cramped, busy traffic conditions. Great lesson in how NOT to ride.

Looks like typical SE Asia traffic, i think this is Thailand? not sure but i have been in lots of those places , U should see downtown Cebu or Manila, its heartstopping, but they all seem to survive

3rd world traffic. At the end of the day, everyone gets where they were going. There seems to be a cottage industry in modding Ninja 250s into 360º engines, as there are several vids. Unless the balance shaft is done right, they are going to shake like a 250 single, as that is the balance factor. 14K would be quite a shake, methinks. At low revs they sound exactly like a typical 180º two-stroke twin. I would have thought they would go for 270º to get the real sound, but hey, it's their bike.
