Took one out for a spin today so Stookie could get an idea of what its like. Here's my views on it (keep in mind I'm 6 feet tall and legs are the long part :wink: and I had a pillion). It had stock pipes and a bikini fairing and about 280kms on the clock. A very little bike....seat to peg height not great and also fairly low. The bars are quite wide although they felt a comfortable height and width (i.e. felt natural...didn't have to stretch). Having said that, I found I could feel my forearms within 20 minutes of getting on. It rode nicely, with reasonable poke in first, but much better pull in second and third (didn't really get out of third). I don't know whether it was me or the bike, but the gear changes into first when moving were not all that smooth. The brakes were good. I loved the way it took corners! I'd never ridden a naked bike before and never a bike with bars as wide and it felt so smooth and comfortable and happy to attack any corner. It sat nicely on the road. The bike had a small bikini fairing and I didn't really notice much more wind than I would from mine (2002 900 Supersport). The main complaint I had after the run was that it felt really light in the front. I didn't really boot onto the freeway as it felt as though the front wheel was going to come up (I know there was weight on the back, but I would have expected a more solid feel anyway). I felt almost as though it was a 250 in my hands, rather than a 1000. The instruments were easy to read, but basic and all analog....speedo, tacho, 5 lights for oil, neutral, etc. A good fun bike, but quite small and probably not suitable for regular pillioning. Lots of go and very quick to legal speeds :wink: , lovely cornering and its a Ducati!
