If you're able to ride it, you'll love it

General Comments:

The Thunder Ace is one hell of a bike; we all have our own thoughts... but remember dead men tell no tales.

I've had a lot of bikes, sports models being GSXR750J, ZXR750h1, ZX750R, all at different states of mind & age.

It's a very very good ride.. still own it and don't want to sell... next bike will be ZX14.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
