Summary:

Fun

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Vary rare Japanese home model, fuel injected 750 based on the 650L turbo fairing and chassis.

Low seat, well balanced, economical, very comfortable upright riding position, very smooth, fully faired.

Weak brakes and not overly powerful, but the power is smooth and well into the torque curve at highway speeds of 100-120Km/hr.

Really cool digital dash.

Design styling is probably one of the ugliest bikes ever made.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
