Retro style combined with detuned CBR motor proves as capable as it’s amusing but under extremis the mass begins to make itself felt. CB1000 motor seems tough so far, without the camchain hassles of the CBR. As the torque peaks out at 6000 revs the mill has an easy time. Good discounts on new ones as it’s been hit by the cheap 1200 Bandit’s.
