What to Expect

Fast, furious, ergonomically challenged and 50lbs too heavy compared to the rival CBR900; the Kawasaki has odd handling from the rear, the Honda from the front. Heard of some examples that’ve been crashed and repaired; fearful at 170mph. Valvegear needs regular servicing, front discs can warp after 15k and suspension goes off with high miles. Caliper seal leaks can wreck things.
