Basically, the bike is pretty damn great. I have owned a Daytona 600 and a GSXR600, and although they give you more of a thrill when pegging it on a aggressive ride 1 time out of 50 (UK weather!), when using the bike everyday through traffic it makes a lot more sense - and you can still have a lot of fun on the fast runs, you've just got to turn the handle thing on the right a bit more.
Smooth power delivery, great handling and nice and easy to chuck into corners. With the usual mods of uprating the front springs, aftermarket exhaust and lower fairings (s-model) you have a stable, great sounding and good looking mid power sportsbike, which you actually get to thrash on the road.

Acceleration marks 9/10. I don't agree. The bike rates about a 6/10 in acceleration.
