What to Expect

Useful, fast multi with few hidden vices. Wheel bearings only last for 20k. After 50k watch out for worn cams, naff gearboxes, slipping clutches and an electrical system with a deathwish. The odd one has done over 100k but most of them were out of action by 70 thou. Rot can rapidly overwhelm the chassis. The USA had the more custom Radian version, available as a grey import. FZ600 was good handling but uncomfortable cafe racer, most dead now.
