Yes, the Supermoto 250 will be available in Taiwan market within coming months and currently is still waiting for launch approval from the domestic Enviromental Bureau after we passed all the tests. Sorry to say that we can not expect a definite date from government officials.
Once we have any good news, we will keep you informed.
Thank you for your kind patience.
According to this perhaps the SM250 seen at the track was not legitimately licensed?
