Response to ok, so when did small bikes become fast!?!?!
last year having bought the GS....There I was bimbling past a row of cars thinking 'This is a bit gutless, needs more oomph' when I glanced at the speedo...105mph. Felt like I was doing 50! Behold a revelation into modern biking...Handling/Speed/Brakes, I only had to think where I wanted to be and the bike did it with no effort or technique involved....pure riding pleasure (except fot the modern tank/seat leg splaying/nut squashing thing under heavy braking...why do modern bike saddles all slope forwards like that?)
Those SVs are very popular with a group of friends up here for track days and all-round fun and frolics, they Love 'em big time...
