I would not normally select this model for a road test, but seeing as White Van Man’s insurance company have delivered it today in recompense for wiping out my Sprint, here are my thoughts:
First impressions (4 miles to the petrol station and back):
- Digital speedo
- Quite torquey
- Needs a gear indicator (I kept losing count…)
- Stepped seat pushes me forwards into the tank
Reminds me of a Bandit 600 that I rode years ago – it may be more modern and have a bigger engine but still about as exciting as watching the F1 from Hochenheim this afternoon.
