I love her ....


The disc brake was pretty worn, and was changed when I bought the bike.

General Comments:

This bike is a very nice one, it's a synthesis of past and present.

She holds the road in a quite satisfying way, the engine is fabulous and it sounds great, according to me.

It's comfortable enough, the braking power is not very good compared to modern motorcycles, but it's 10 years old...

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
