What to Expect

Fast, furious stroker that has a complex motor which causes maximum hassle when it starts to wear out after 35k – which means most examples left on the road. Also, most were crashed and repaired poorly; check the frame over very carefully, especially the rear subframe which bends first and is very hard to repair without cracking. Lack of comfort, the odd speed wobble and high running costs.
