Those bikes only made a max of 45hp at peak RPM with zero emission restrictions and a higher redline, while the new ZX25R US and EU versions are making 45hp with a bunch of emission restrictions to meet EURO 5 emission law requirements. And supposedly there is a 60hp version, which I imagine is the de-restricted bike.

You're also forgetting that 250s and other small bikes lost their luster and were nothing more than cheap beginner bikes for a long time. Look how long the ex250 was around for in its hideous state, and even the Ninja 250 and the CBR250 were pretty pathetic for quite awhile.
