i agree with david,
My old '91 600R was dyno tuned to a T and it only made 67 HP (had full muzzy and Stage3 DJ Kit) but it WAS heavy, it was NOT a wheelie bike, (you could do wheelies, but they had to be Brutal clutched and hellish snap wheelies, no fun)
But the handling on the bike was great. With progressive front springs, i could easily keep up with ANY older bike, and *almost* catch bikes like the f2 and even the older 900RR. (yes it is true) Occaisional wallowing in 120mph+ sweepers was not uncommon though.
In tighter twisties i could stay with most anyone. It was great bike, but the old technology, heavy frame, low power and limitations on upgrades kept it in the "beginner bike" category.
As far as comfort, it was very comfy.
