yep the on/off throttle is noticeable but not so annoying as to bother a huge amount. Worst was mid corner holding the throttle to balance the bike. Tried a few low speed round-a-bouts couldn't replicate it. My fave tuning shop has a fix using a power commander and a custom map to fatten up the fueling at small throttle openings.
The motor is nice, traction control is noticeable but again not annoyingly so (on 2) Turned it off and the engine did "appear" more responsive. She pulls nicely, hard to compare to the FZ1 as it had power commander, custom map, K&N filter and full akrapovic system. Speaking of the TC wish that orange Off light could be.... off.
Most impressive thing was how it handled in the twisties. Big grin. Loves to be chucked from side to side, those Dunlops are a surprise
Much better than the FZ1 on Michy's Pilots. Steering is slower than the FZ1 but oh so much more confident
Other nice thing was the gearbox. Now THAT is how a gearbox should work. Whines like a bitch in sixth tho
Seat is very comfy but supportive, had an hour run this morning with no problems at all. Love the renthal bars. Wasn't sure how well the screen would work, at 100 kmh (and a bit
) did a decent job
Finish is good, that stoopid plastic cover over the front of the tank is going to stop me mounting a magnetic tank bag.
Had the Yoshi can on it, don't know what if anything it does other than aesthetics
All in all a positive result...
put down some $ and pick it up in the morning.
Got a nice deal as it was a demo with a whole 231km on it when I finished riding it. Pix to come when she is in the garage
Colour: the only choice!! Red / Black coz red goes faster
