Very good starter sports bike or a very fun, quick race rep 2nd bike
HT Coils are going, but nothing else.
Very fast if you keep it above 8000 rpm. Look out 600's, you can be beaten with 200cc less on a twisty road!
Very reliable, never failed to start or broken down.
Solid handling, loves being thrashed, but good at cruising as well.
Looks stunning with the single sided swinging arm.
Ideal single person bike, loses the top end with two up.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
