What to Expect

High revving, tough twin that eventually succumbs to top end problems, partly because shot gearbox allows false neutrals and hence excessive revs. Not even upgraded suspension completely tames the handling as geometry is wrong but it’s more weaving and wallowing than outright speed wobbles. 12V electrics eventually blow the rectifier and batteries. Good for its day, still useful in traffic but rare in the UK.
