What to Expect

V50 design knocked out to the maximum doesn’t exactly inspire as it’s a long way from leading edge engineering but it is a compact, light bike that can do most things adequately. Exciting it ain’t. Targa version looks neat and the 750T has its uses as a tourer cum hack. Expect engine problems after 25000 miles if it’s been used at all hard, although finish and electrics have improved over the years. Nevada’s mild, almost useful tourer in custom mode.
