I stumbled into this on one of the Australian dealers web sites. "Expected ADR approval for Hunter Motorcycles Spyder 250 - February 2008  &  860cc V-Twin for 2009"

Here is the URL http://www.taylorsmotorcycles.com.au/template32311.htm

So according to the dealer I ordered my Spyder from we get the 250cc water cooled engine next month, then a 400cc upgrade motor kit for $1200 this year and next year an 860cc V-Twin! I am not sure if the guys here are dreaming but you might like to check it out anyway.

I hope I don't appear to ignorant but what is a pre hinkley triumph 650-750 it appears from the text on the Hunter website that this engine has been installed in a spyder. Do you have any knowledge of the engine. Has your dealer spoken of it.

Are you saying they will have a bolt in upgrade engine available for the 250 spyder?And refering to the mention of the triumph engine I believe they are suggesting it would be a suitable "fit",what Ive been thinking about for awhile now.

The 250cc that we will get is a water cooled one and the 400cc upgrade is also water cooled. I think it would take a bit of effort to get the 400cc water cooled engine in the single down tube frame. Personally I don't like the look of the water cooled engines but we are stuck with them.

I notice that the specs on the Hunter site for the 400cc engine have been removed but the engine is still there. I'll be following up with my dealer.

 It also refers to "digital fuel injection".  Where?  All the pics show a carb and if there is FI available, why don't I have it?

I noted on the injection part too...
I know for my country the new exhaust standards (EURO norm) will most likely force most new bike models to have the injection since its almost impossible to obtain the low values with a carburated engine.
The being said... I prefer my carburator any day ;-)  But times are changing I guess.

This is proberly most hear-say than facts, not saying that it's aint true though...

ok the injection part sucks!! as far as having to have it!! might a lil pep for perfromance??? probably not? ok to the main issue i have with this is...a 400cc  conversion"Huh water cooled?? ok the 250s has only one  down support bar.(correct me on my terminology)!! the 300s has a 2 down support frame-which the water cooler/radiator is mounted to. so if this correct and a 400cc is available-which seems to be a water cooled only platform(i am sure not all the specifics are available for us to make this assumption). we are still waiting for an engine upgrade right?? point being-400ccc water cooled engine replacement-..well 250 only has 1 bar,(air cooled),  how can we upgrade to this water cooled system..w/o adding another support frame bar.Huh
