Default Fz16

When I took the bike for a ride, the first thing I noticed was the awesome pickup. I took the bike along the short roads inside the university campus and the next thing I noticed was the great stability that the bike has when you take it along the curves. The big rear tyre and the low centre of gravity makes it absolutely easy to ride it in the city roads. As I told you earlier, this is a street bike!

Yeah, they take 2 banks of cylinders and heads and graft them into a custom bottom end. They lose a little in the stroke, so it comes out a 1,600.
