Vibrates at certain revs in certain gears but once you are familiar with these you ride through them
750 quad carb old school, 0-60 bout 4.5 seconds tops out at 140ish plenty quick enough for a tourer
Lower tax bracket
Old school built solid
Could use an aftermarket upgrade to braided hoses but twin front brembo disc and twin pot calipers are more than capable of stopping the bike quickly
Smooth enough, however a very heavy beast, doesn't enjoy a corner too much!
Powerful enough for day to day use. I enjoy the usability of the power.
The bike could come with better brakes along with stiffer stock suspension.
Very impressed, no issues at all!
Brakes could be better, I have upgraded the lines and pads which made a huge difference and comes highly recommended.
