LML STAR for Europe

April 29th, 2009 - 2Strokebuzz reported yesterday that the new LML Star (known as the Genuine Stella in the USA) was finally announced to European markets. One could only assume that a US version isn't very far behind. Most interesting about the Star are its specs. Emissions requirements seemed to have taken quite a toll on the modernized engine as its only able to put out 7.7bhp. Many Chinese 150s put out at least this most power. While 7.7bhp isn't a bad starting point, the new motor is going to be much harder and more expensive to extract extra power out of the bike.
