What to Expect

Interesting alternative to the CBR and ZZR600 that lacks their ultimate edge but makes up for it with greater practicality and lower cost. Plastic cracks badly in minor spills, rear caliper gums up in winter and quite heavy on the consumables. The looks tend to grow on you with time but older CBR600’s for the same money.
