Handling?

It does look good though!

It's a ratbike,i see loads much better than this at rallys every week,& as for the CX having a 'peach' of an engine,they're shite.I worked as a courier for donkeys n wouldn't touch a CX,GS Suzukis are far more reliable last longer & you can change the gearing,3000 revs at 80 mph returning 60+ mpg anyone.
