what's the 750 like..

to run and maintain? isn't the 1200 just a bigger engine version of that with shaft drive?..it wouldn't be the looks that put me off,or the fact that I might be considered a gentleman of a certain age with money to burn (based on original list price)...but more because it doesn't appear to be a DIY' ers machine for servicing and general maintenance.

But I've no doubt that in 60 years time we'll be seeing it on sites like this.:biggrin:

My brother in law has had (still has) a couple of vtec 800s, done a lot of miles on them. He had a 1200 on demo for a day,...... said it was very grunty, but no better than his 800.... still has the 800.

pre-unit...

yes that's a lot of ...hard luggage for 10 grand .(another reason why I would'nt buy one)It's also a lifeless colour scheme and what looks like a GS1200 adventure tank,is actually a tiny cg125 one....I did say 'initial retail price',which at the time was quite a bit above the competition (yamaha excepted)...and quite a lot more than what the 'super blackbird crew' were used to paying.(even though the black birders did seem to like spending money on after market stuff.).You know there is a big,manic bike out there for the same money....and arguably fugglier.....and a hell of a lot more potential for illegallity.:smile
