They make me leery as well. Some of the guys running the new ones swear by them, they even get a little testy when prodded a tad.

You would have thought the latest release would have been a 240...Don't see it happening..or not until DA releases there's so they can copy it!

That is one of the things the DLE222 V3 guys are a little sensitive about. Their new engine will soon be outdated when they come out with a new version with the 60cc heads. You can bet the whole 55/111/222 line will become the 60/120/240 line within a year.
