I've only had mine a few months, but 4000 mi. and it is big fun at only 12$ a month insurance. I ride with two CBRs and take my wife for rides when we get a chance. It has never given me any troubles or never needed any more power. I ride on 4 lanes and 2 and never any dought. GREAT BIKE highly recommended,unless you need to go 131 miles per hour.

If you enjoy high revs, light weight, decent handing and good looks in one package, this is a bike worth considering. My bike's only mods are V&H complete exhaust and Metzeler MEZ4 tires. Riding in the twisties is where this bike shines. Keep the revs above 7000 rpm and the speed in a curve about 20-30 mph above the posted speeds and it is a sheer blast. Just point and go. With its light weight and good tires installed, mid-corner adjustments are not difficult. There really is not any bad engine buzzing at any rpm either. It is all tolerable. Shifting is classic Suzuki. Positive but with some slack involved. No missed shifts unless I screw up. The handlebars are standard attachment, not clip-ons. So they can be replaced with the multitude of choices of bars available very easily, for comfort purposes. Of course, I have to include some downsides too. Being only 400cc's, torque is virtually nonexistent below 4500 rpm in the higher gears. Depending on the situation, going uphill requires 2, sometimes 3 drops in the gears to keep momentum up. The most bothersome annoyance is the factory seat. Comfort is acceptable but the angle is really dumb. I find myself falling into the tank crotch first very often. Nothing I do stops me from sliding forward. On long trips, riding position begins to become a slight pain. I would average the comfort to being in the middle of the sport bike class though. Not real painful but not completely comfortable either. Reliability has been 100 percent except for a very occasional stall during idling. Once in a while it just dies, but starts immediately thereafter. If I hear that happening, a quick blip of the throttle cures it and I can avoid the stall. It happens so infrequently that I haven't got to concerned about it. If you want torque and light weight in one bike, get a YZF-R1 or something similar. If you want zippy fun, cheap insurance and good looks, consider one of these. I have got many comments and second-looks on this bike from many other riders. They were available from 1991-1993.
