great for cornering, small wheelbase, great power throughout

I love mine.....but


Just wish there was a sitxth gear. If you want to keep up with the 600's, get another bike. I do own a firebolt.

I test rode one at the motorcycle show last November. They are a blast to ride and are affordable second hand. Very different experience from a Japanese bike, like riding a snarling, two wheeled tractor. Tons of torque. The max steering angle is only 54 degrees, compared to 70+ for a modern sport bike. You notice that in a parking lot. If you have a M endorsement go to the show this November. Show up early!

I think the 2008's had redesigned steering heads for more steering angle.

I like the slightly older firebolt with the round alien looking lights. The white one would be my fav. the new one looks old
