Great comfort, reliability and motor


Regular stuff; nothing to write home about.

General Comments:

This was my starter bike, and it was perfect to practice on. I topped out at 220kph all the time, and needed more, so I bought a Busa!! I had my fix with that. But sold that because I was going to kill myself.

Great comfort, reliability and motor. The guy I sold it to went over 120,000 km with no major issues, and long trips across North America. Then he sold it to another guy, who from what I hear, is still riding it.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
