Even though you may be able to find someone in the United States or Canada actually willing to buy one, seemingly such a narrow price gap between the 250 and the ZX-6R might seem not worth the expense to certify it as a captive import. It's likely to be a strong seller in Japan mostly due to both the tiered licensing and lower taxes for motorcycles up to 250cc, and AFAIK some other Asian countries have some regulations preventing large-displacement motorcycles to achieve greater volumes. Australia also has a tiered licensing which may provide good market opportunities for it too.
