Its not much of a race/track machine. Probably better for your kids since its a 4 stroke. Almost like those metrakit bikes.

Better off to get Honda's rs125 to race/track with...

Yeah its made for the track... from the site..

Blending MotoGP styling with the Honda's ultra reliable four-stroke power, this NSF100 has on dominant goal: showing aspiring young racers the quickest path to the podium. But don't be surprised if you see veteran road racers or cross-over off-roaders dicing it up on this HRC-developed machine during local track days.

Check the MRRDA website www.mrrda.com
They're running a juniors series this year, using CBR150F's. They look similar, as well as to the CBR 100's they're getting in Canada.
First race meeting was last weekend, I didn't go, coz I was playing with my new toy (see "Team Witness Protection goes PC"). There should be results and photo's up soon.
The CBR150's are also eligible for Motolite class, and there's a photo of me passing one in the TWF Gallery. The owner imported that one from Thailand, and had it on the track less that 48 hours after it arrived in Aust.

NSF 100's are essentially mini trackbikes or overgrown uberfast pocketbikes.

if they were street legal, I'd TOTALLY be rockin one.

In the 80's Yamaha had a YSR50 2 stroker and Honda had a NSR50. These bikes were european street legal and the US got a few grey market examples complete with lights and mirrors. Then they started turning up at race tracks in a mini classes and were raced in series in Europe making Honda and Yamaha want to continue producing them in race only trim.

They are still raced today only usually highly modified and sometimes using TZ85 motors. Honda went all green last year abd did away with all their 2 stroke products and so in the spirit of the moment bolted a XR100 engine in place of the 50cc smoker and KABLAM NSF100.

These bikes are serious fun for all ages and have taught alot of youngsters how to race over the years. My race club the CMRA (www.cmraracing.com) runs an endurance class for them as well as a sprint class.
