A cheap, underrated bike that still cuts it
Rev counter sometimes reads double the actual revs.
Can suffer from vapor lock if left in the sun for any time.
Anti-dive unit leaked fork oil.
My first "proper" motorcycle after owning a Suzuki GT250X7. I bought it because it was cheap, black and was 600cc.
I'm not a hard-out racer and I find this bike is more than enough for my skills. The exhaust sounds a lot better than most other bikes this size, and leaves all the cars standing at the lights (especially the little boy racers in their tarted up Mazda rotary's).
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
