Grip and handling that will match most things. Don't expect to be able to behave yourself when riding one of these. Wheelies off the throttle even downhill. Wonderful engine in a package that ways about as much as most 125s. The exhaust note is so addictive you will find yourself rolling back the throttle to hear it. I have a sports can and the bike has been rejetted to suit. Everything is just so simple. Easy to service. Vibration is not as bad as you would think and 20 miles on the motorway is manageable.

Some people say the finish is not very durable and I would agree but it's fine if you look after it. Mine is 11 years old and doesn't need the frame recoating for another year or two. Instruments particularly the speedo are hopelessly inaccurate. Rest of the electrics seem ok to me but keep an eye on the loom where it may rub the frame. Definitely a bike that benefits from a considerate owner but bear in mind a lot of these bikes will have been crashed due to every riders inner lunatic.

Buy one! It is capable of putting a grin on the face of the most miserable motorcyclist. No good for touring, No good for 200 mile rides with your sports bike riding mates, but the tighter the bends and the gaps in the traffic the more this bike comes in to it's own. People will see you riding like a t#*t and say "look at that t#*t" you won't hear it you will just know it but you just won't care!
