It's cool. Just picked it up yesterday and rode it to work this morning. Haven't really "tested" it yet. Pegs have more clearance than the 500 I traded in which would scrape before I got to the edge of the tire.

I think some of the design cues make it look decidedly retro. Something about that back wheel is very dated. That's not necessarily a bad thing depending on how you look at it. I know how much fun naked bikes are!

With the limited seat time, how are the power/handling characteristics compared to the cbr?

I know it burns regular gas and supposedly has more mid-range torque for city driving. Takes a lot less effort to turn because of the leverage with the bars and not having to "fight" the HESD which is only on the CBR

Awesome, thanks. Looking at dumping the zx6r in the next year for a naked bike so I'm trying to get as many opinions as I can on the different models.

You can get a killer deal on a brand new "old stock" bike

Melikey!

Looks like a fun bike esecially for commuting with the occasional twist of the wrist.

Hope to see it in person soon.
