What to Expect

More useful than the Daytona for general riding but not really the kind of thing to inspire much love. Handling’s safe and secure but limited by the mass and top heavy feel. Upgraded brakes in ’95, which are a major improvement over the old ones that could go off after a couple of British winters. Consumable demise and lack of protection from the fairing limit its role as a long distance tourer, but they are tough old bruisers with an evocative exhaust note. New, more radical tourer version for ’96.
