Hot styling blows the minds of juvenile road testers but it has the power and handling to back up the looks. Highly impressive to ride for short periods, the comfort factor may limit long distance enjoyment. The successor to the old 900SS as far as highway kicks on the brutal side goes; the 916’s quite capable of blowing away most of the big Jap replicas. Both the 748 and 916 had their prices cut heavily in 1997, now lots more on the market than before.
