Summary:

Japanese Ducati that doesn't break down

Faults:

Nothing whatsoever.

General Comments:

One of the best handling bikes I've ever owned, it's just fast enough to be fun (mine's lightly tuned to produce 80 bhp up from the standard 74). Sounds just like a Ducati, especially when race cans are fitted.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
