This bike is classed as a sports / tourer and it does a great job of both, a bit of a Jekyll & Hyde. It eats up winding roads for breakfast and provides all footrest scraping fun you would expect from a spostr bike. Take it on a long trip and you find a different personality in the bike, comfortable and reliable, everthing you would expect from a tourer. If I must ctitisise anything it is the capacity of the fuel tank for long runs means finding a fuel stop every 150 miles or so. All this combined with 140mph performance, excellecnt brakes and handling make it a good all rounder. Strengths: The powerplant is excellent, riding position is comfortable, it handles, it's fast and it stops, what more do you need! Excellent value for money. Weaknesses: Outdated looks, restrictive fuel tank capacity for touring.
