Six cylinder behemoth that some intrepid owners ride at ten-tenths, fear inspiring wheelies and all. Try to buy one that’s been used as a tourer. Engine tough until 40k, when thrashed examples burn out valves, clutches and pistons; even the odd mangled crankshaft. Others made it to 80k before engine needed a rebuild. Rear disc can crack up, chassis bearings wear out fast and suspension not really up to the mass…six cylinder smoothness, wicked acceleration and the sheer outrageousness of the plot commendable.
