Summary:

Ridiculously awesome

Faults:

Piston rings blew at 17000km and ruined a cylinder, required a top end rebuild and re-plating of the cylinder.

General Comments:

AWESOME BIKE. Much more exciting than any 4-stroke 600cc sports-bike around.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
