Absolutely !!!! +100000000000000000

I don't have any problems downshifting. I have a 2 fingered slipper clutch on my left hand. I control tire spin with my right hand.

the 675 hauls and has quite a bit more torque than the Jappers... i haven't had mine on the track yet...but it'll take a lot of skill growth on my part before i'll even think of hitting the edge of that bikes limits.

the ride position takes a bit getting used to as it has a very aggressive stance compared to some of the bikes.... oh and the turn in on corners in ridiculous...

i'm taking my time and improving my skills before really testing the bike...because the bike's limits are WAY above my limits... but at least i'll have plenty of room to grow because to me it seems like the performance is endless. (that could be cuz i suck tough. )


oh...and you don't have to worry about having 30 other bikes EXACTLY like yours at every M&G.

The 675 I think out of the box can use a few mods.
1) suspension work
2) better (BRIDGESTONE) tires

and easy to find parts wouldn't hurt

I've never tried the Bridgestones. I didn't have anything bad to say about the stock Pirellis but I've got a new set of Michellin 2CT that will be on before my next track day.

If I ever find a deal on a spare set of wheels, I will probably go with slicks and tire warmers.

I've ridden this bike, and he's right. I was very impressed with the 675 at the track!
