They discontinued it last year, I think. It WAS a pooch, after all. I couldn't believe how little power they got out of that engine. It barely made any more power than my old Seca 2, and it was only a 600, and lighter weight.

And you wonder why bicycles are switching to disc brakes!

This bike is available in Canada. Import it!



Haven't ridden one but have enjoyed the view from the dealer's showroom floor.

Yeah. But you don't have to wash off that horrid sticky chain lube that builds up on your rim, frame, left leg.......

Ah yes the Good Old Daze. When the Japanese were neck deep in cash and were buying every US property they could get their grubby little mitts on. They soon learned how pi$$ poor they were at negotiating Real Estate deals or aquiring entertainment companies. Their "infallibility" took quite a beating.



It would be nice to be able to pick up still new 3 year old bikes for 40% of original retail price again.

70 HP at the crank, I think. And about 500 lbs. Once underway, the feeling of portliness disappears.

He's never ridden a naked standard so he wouldn't know. His entire repertoire of motorcycling is one ZX600 Ninja. He'd have to rev it over 7000 RPM to get any benefit from the fairing in the first place. So he may as well ride a naked standard after all.



Still, he is an expert on the subject.. or any subject. Just ask.
