Fantasic bike, fast, sexy, amazing braking power... awesome!!


I have yet to have any major or minor things wrong with this bike.

General Comments:

This bike is quick and loves the corners. This is a serious racing bike; not a toy to be used and abused. She needs to be warm before you wring her neck; just ease her into it and it'll last a long long time.

Keep the oil full and keep it in a cosy environment, and it'll always be ready to run.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
