1997 Yamaha YZF600R Thundercat from Canada
It is a great beginner motorcycle, and I give it top marks for comfort!
Absolutely nothing has gone wrong with it yet. I got scared with it being my first bike that overheating was an issue, but found out that the radiator fan kicks in at around 110 degrees Celsius.
This was my first bike, so I have little to nothing to compare to this, plus I am writing this at 2 in the morning while intoxicated, so bear with me.
I LOVE my Thundercat. It almost keeps up with my friends modern 600cc's, plus it's 1000X more comfortable to sit on (which contrary to what I thought before, matters a lot).
It has also been quite reliable, even though I drive it every day and have put on 4000km in 3 months.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
