A flashback to the old SS vee-twins, with the same silly riding position and similar kind of gutsy performance. Handles and performs even better with the benefit of a bit more civilisation. Looks tiny alongside some Jap multi’s and a viable alternative to the FZR and GSXR multitudes. Check clutch, electrics, front forks, and engine for bottom or top end noises and oil leaks. Availability of reasonably priced examples is poor.
