Reliable, good looking in blue and a multitude of other good points. Really nice with rear hugger fitted.
Exhaust pits if not loved a lot don't like position of oil filter and oil cooler catches all the spray off from front wheel. Headlight hi lo switch makes you move hand position sounds petty but can be real pain at speed on country roads at night cheap seat.
Very good for money even with niggly bits top end 128 mph according to the book, but I'll not try this so I'll just trust them on that. Handles very well is forgiving of most mistakes stick with good tyres came with Bridgestone got nearly 3,000 miles changed to metzlers handled like crazy in the wet and on white lines and tended to tip into bends now on pilot road2 much lighter more sure footed feel. Fair mpg, insurance reasonable ride position ok for about 2- 3 hours if not overly fit nice bike.
