Not trying to sound to smug , but lm a one of the lucky one`s , at the moment l own a 12r and a busa at the same time. Bought the 12r as an impulse thing, glad l did aswell . Its a total different bike to the busa , better at low speeds, due to the increased height it flicks about a bit easier. Wasn`t totally overwhelmed at first but its grown on me considerably. Swapped my GSX1400 as l never wanted to ride that after buying the busa. Thought if l got a similar performing monkey there`d be more chance of it entertaining me. At first found it a distant second on power to the busa(due to the busa`s mods) upped the 12r`s power and made it a far better bike to ride. Quite a handful now.
Clocks could be better, like the busa digital items would be better, can`t read em at a glance once over the ton mark.
For tyres l run Avon Storms, what a tyre, the both bikes are shod in em. They`re amazing, used to use Azaros on my bandit, good but killed em quickly. The storms do 3000miles on the rear on the busa , done 2000 on the 12r and plenty left.
Engine hunting at tickover, nothing major just annoying at junctions, caught it on the down side at a lazy take off only for it to stall on me. My fault as much as the bikes.
Mine is met. green a stunning colour, if it wasn`t that it would av to be black.
Insurance , got 3 bikes on my policy with Express insurance , a cbr1000 streetfighter to, all for 450 quid fully comp protected , 3yrs NCB, 3 points. Brick garage.
