Quality, well built motorcycle. Excellent for two-up touring
At 38000 km the ignition pickup diode broke down.
The rear stoplight switch no longer works.
When hot, sometimes the neutral light doesn't come on and neutral becomes hard to select.
Sturdy, well built motorcycle. Will not budge under heavy winds.
Powerful and responsive engine of the pre fuel injection era, fed by three Mikuni carburettors, really combines the advantages of both two cylinder (low down torque) and four cylinder (high rpm and top speed) engines.
The price to pay for its sturdiness is a top-heavy feel, so steering is slow. Also the weight shows itself when moving the Sprint at walking pace.
The 26-liter fuel tank gives a range of over 300 km, however the fuel warning light comes on way too soon.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
