Six cylinder piece of madness whose handling defies its width and weight, superior to most big, bad Jap bikes of the era. Motor was smooth but gutless, presumably because of the excess of frictional forces in the engine and low tech two valve combustion chamber. Though it’s not impractical it’s more likely to be viewed as a venerable classic by collectors than a usable road bike. Lacks comfort, coherent electrics and long-lived clutch or alternator.
