I bought this 636 after it caught my eye in the garage I take my bandit to for new tyres. I was on the look out for a sports six and had tried the honda CBR600F, Gixer and R6 but they weren`t really for me. I hadn`t seen another 636 in my price range that was worth more attention than ah hell its covered in aftermarket tat. Anyway took it for a test ride, and it blew my socks off, I had to take it easy due to a spill on the bandit left me with a dodgy shoulder, but that was soon forgotten with the engine note and the pull from the engine. To say I was smitten was an understatement. Strengths: The engine is awesome. For a gangly 6ft 2" person there is plenty of room on the bike and it is generally comfy although around town, although it can get a bit heavy on the wrists. Weaknesses: The carb icing the bike has suffered in the last 2 weeks has been depressing. In the next few weeks it will get a good run and be put on a dyno to check fueling.
