Two buddies own them (05's) so I got to ride them a few times.
Suspension is superb. (Inverted fork makes for lighter unsprung weight and is stronger where it needs it)
The bike is light, flickable.
Ergonomics are relativly pleasant. Its still a sportbike, but its much more relaxed than my 10
The tranny needs another 2 gears. The power is there but you gotta click at the tranny a few times to find it. That might just be going from a liter to a 600
Needs braided brake lines. The brakes feel wooden. Utter lack of feedback. But its a cheap fix
The clutch is bizzare. first 20% of the motion has the entire slip territory. Makes starting from a stop abit difficult. You feather the clutch out and for the longest time nothing happens. Just when you start thinking you forgot to put it in gear it lurges forward. But once again its something you get used to.
