This may surprise some of you knowing that I am, well, a Hondanut..
A friend of mine just brought home a Brand new ZRX1200R from the dealership. Its the first one to arrive in town. He brought it by my house yesterday and actually said "wanna ride it?"
~~"Hell ya!" was my reply and I even let him ride my new VFR.
So anyway, that ZRX is one really, really nice bike!! Its like a sportbike that you sit up on. I dont know if it's because Im getting used to the V-Four engine but that Kawi. 1200 motor is SO SMOOTH! from the start button, through every silky gear up to the 4000 rpm allowed during the first 500 miles that bike is nice! You can tell its got torque from hell and will be a monster wheelie machine!
The tranny, as I said before, is just silky.
The brakes are just like on my 900RR; Very strong.
The suspension is good stuff, as good as on my VFR for sure -maybe better since it has compression and rebound adjustments on the forks which my VFR does'nt
(Still love the VFR
The paint is really cool, nicely applied and finished.
and get this! The thing only cost him a bit under
$8000! ~~~for a 1200cc bike!
