In general I am very happy with the motorcycle. Honda reliability is evident, starts up every time, and usually starts cold without the choke even in chilly weather.
Off the line acceleration is good, and more than adequate to deal with the cages around you. It can hold 85 (speedo indicated) on the highway, although it will be buzzy. Highway passing requires planning, as the midrange pickup is lacking, even if you are in the correct gear.
The bike is narrow and makes an excellent lane splitter - and it is so light, I believe under 300 pounds with a low seat height, so it is very beginner friendly.
The throttle is predictable and linear, and even if you go crazy there is not enough power to get in trouble.
Handling is good, but the ride is somewhat harsh for a bike that doesn't give you all that much feel.
Braking power is only average, however on this type of bike you should not be going that fast anyway.
The seat becomes uncomfortable after an hour, and unbearable after 90 minutes, even with a good break.
The ergonomics and gauges are good, I am 6'3" with a 34" inseam and I am relatively comfortable, my wife at 5'3" also can handle it well.
The shifter is okay, and the clutch action is fair, not spectacular but perfectly usable.
Because the bike was only available in the US from 88-90, it is hard to get parts for, so that should be a consideration before purchasing. For this reason alone if I had it to do over again, I would probably get a Ninja 250. Otherwise, I am very happy with this bike, and although I am passing it on to my wife and getting a 82 Honda SilverWing 500, I doubt I will ever sell it - if and when she outgrows it, I will convert it to our track day bike.
All in all, an excellent product by Honda.
