Value for money super looker


Nothing wrong with this bike. However near rear tyre needed soon.

General Comments:

First off! What a looker, remember when the RF's were first on the market, being described as the Ferrari of motorbikes due to the fairing vents.

Have to agree, it always gets looks, even though it cost £1000, it's a lot of bike for the money!!

Handles well dry and wet comfortable on long journeys.

Acceleration is as you would expect, 2nd 3rd etc is quite exhilarating!!!

Spent a few years off bikes, so bought this as an introducer. Highly recommend this for that purpose. Now looking for 1000 cc +

Super bike for the money.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
