    Default The body is strong but the will is weak.

    I was going to buy the Yamaha MT-01 bike as a change to my Triumph Speed Triple, however after looking around for a few days and test riding a few bikes, I have changed my mind completely.

    Please welcome the new toy.



    1000cc, 170 BHP, 166kg, restricted to 186mph and 0-60 is 3 seconds.
    Oh, and 0-120mph in about 5 and a bit!!

    Especially if the shops are 100 miles away and you need to get to them in under 40 minutes!!

    ah ha - a relative to the well known Suzuki "hedge-abuser" superbike. Not bad I suppose (trying not to sound too jealous) - still prefer the 'blade though.........

    I had a good look at the blade. I had a 954RR3 a couple of years ago.
    The only problem with Hondas IMHO is they have no character.
