An exciting small bike


Absolutely nothing.

General Comments:

I always kick myself for getting rid of this motorcycle. It was by far the most fun motorcycle I have owned.

The 400 cc four-cylinder engine screams to a 14000 rpm red-line. There is almost nothing below 8000, which gives the rider an excellent excuse to drive aggressively.

Brakes are excellent. Fuel mileage is excellent.

Why did I trade it for a VTR1000? I do not know.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
