Not the lightest but good when on the move, corners great.
Engine powerful but not mental just right
Could be slightly better looking
Build quality good but let down once with electric problems
Front brake great, rear brake not as good but ok
Very smooth, middle weight and it does corner well
The S-Kerch mode 3 is a very good performance
Smaller rear indicators
Never broken down and no problems
Yes I know the braking system, doesn't seem very responsive
No trouble racking up 100+ miles in one hit. Not had a pillion passenger but can imagine it's not that fun seating on a knife edge. It's not not a bike you buy for that!
I added a rapid power commander and quick shifter. Decat akro system too. Read days around 206hp
It's a kwak!! Built to last and withstand a punishing
They are just crazy strong
Bit vibratey if I'm honest, but told by mates all sports bikes like that
I've not and probably won't ever get to take bike to its limits.. Track days way too ££££, got yo stick to street riding.
First time on a bike since 2008 ish only had it two months, no idea of running cost
Apart for fact the brake levers mske my wrists ache and unable to turn them down as by more because of the fairing panels
Not sure of braking system, it feels a a bit soft if I'm honest
Smooth ride ,light and edgy with great handling
Brilliant performance but should be able to turn traction control etc off whilst moving
It's not too bad depending on riding style on the day
Not had problems yet
Good stopping power for confident riding
The bike is so light is like riding a 250 on the road,it handles better than anything I’ve owned,from 94 cbr900rr to 05 speed triples l,the suspension is good although I have upgraded the shock and forks for more pub points.
It’s like being on a race horse with the personality of a rabid dog! Absolutely mental
Running costs are good. Insurance is on par with any other 1000cc sports bike. I’m averaging 140-145 miles per tank so very pleased. All I will say is you need to factor in the cost of good tires.
The build quality is ok.,acceptable but not a patch Honda. Paint finish on the frame and swingarm is almost see through,and they used a lot of Velcro as a way of fastening parts. Not good in my eyes.
Stock callipers ain’t upto it but for little money the brakes can be made phenomenal.using zzr1400 callipers and master cylinder
Rides like a dream, quick as chuf handles well responds extremely well to fast changes of direction
Came powerful from factory and now I have added a few toys she has conjured up a few more ponies. Good job I have more planned For her including suspension full system and some bling.
Fuel consumption isn’t the most economical however it isn’t built for saving the planet it’s built to do stupid speeds which it does in extraordinary fashion. Insurance cost however Is reasonable
Never had any issues I have owned the bike from new the service has been kept up to date and she has never let me down
Sharp breaks using tokico 4 pots on the front with tokico radial master cylinder and tokico rear calliper. In comparison to my commuter motorcycle the breaks are out of this world
