Varying speed for breakin like they told me I did anywhere from 0 mph up to an indicated 80mph. Buffeting was less than I expected, plenty of go, but getting my size 11 ham-footed boots under the gear selector took some getting used to, seems a little tight from foot peg to gear shift, especially compared to the MSF Kawasaki 125cc. Took my second ride thanksgiving, rode around the highschool parking lot for about 15-20 min, and then rode down to the lake and then home. Plenty fast enough for the highway, handles very well, sporty lean forward but not bad. I'm 5' 10" 170lbs.
Look into a longer gear selector as an after-market option, I bet you can find one!

Default Welcome

You have chosen a fine motorcycle,
but I suggest you rethink the REPSOL insignia.

You may get tired of it, and it would be expensive to modify.

Furthermore, why provide free advertising for a profit-making company,
especially one that does not give you compensation for the work you do.

Of course, it is your ride, and your money. I have ridden your
Hill Country, and I think you will enjoy exploring your fine state.

Keith

You can adjust the gear lever up a bit, if you want.

Thank you all for the warm reception!! Indeed when I do get my Black ABS CBR, all us Texans gotta take a ride out to Luckenbach to enjoy these bikes in the hills. First refreshing drink after the ride will be on me!
