Bought one from scratch 2 years ago but had it nicked from a quiet London street, so decided to save money and get a slightly used one, same glorious black and gold livery. Now had this one 6 months and still really pleased with it, for the most part. In London, insurance is a problem - standard garage of Bikesafe is compulsory, and even then it's a fortune for fully comp. Not good for city use really. Never gets out of 1st/2nd, heats up, guzzles fuel and feels temperamental, jerky and snatchy. Depends a bit how you tune it, but I always find mine frustrating till at least 2k and until past 1st gear. Might end up getting a runaround for London and keeping this for Sunday best/touring abroad. Riding position is great, long-haul trips a joy, no complaints on the ergonomics front. Strengths: Great pull after about 2-3k, very smooth in any gear above first (see weaknesses below) and beautiful finish (while it lasts?). For its cubic capacity, the profile is pretty slim. I managed to follow a mate on his new ZZR6 through really tight London traffic, so must be about same width, I would have thought. Great set of tripmeters and alternative displays. Weaknesses: No centre stand . No hard luggage available to speak of (not quite true, found some ultrasmart but practically naff, tiny hard panniers in the US that would have cost £600 to buy, another £100 to spraypaint same colour as bike and probably a good £50+ to ship over from the US). Cruising range too short for my liking (especially abroad and in remote areas): only ever managed to get 120 out of her on a full tank, even riding carefully without urban stop/start palaver.
