I know, it’s a bit odd. A power cruiser on a race track. The raked out front end, the upright seating, the low set footpegs, and the long wheelbase aren’t really virtues when it comes to going flat out corner after corner.
But then, it fits our theme for this year’s track day perfectly. It is a street bike. And it is performance oriented. After all, it does make almost 40bhp in its new avatar. And, it has some good hardware now as well. The bike now runs a four valve head, it gets upside down front forks, the suspension is better damped, and the brakes have improved too.
