Great, great, great bike! First off, its not an R1 or GSXR1000 so don't compare it to these monsters. The one thing it is, is the best all around bike you can buy today.
The engine is great! Very smooth with linear acceleration. It is totally manageable as you can feel the power building between 3k-5k, comes alive at 5k-8k, and you better HOLD ON if you have a wrist full of throttle above 8k because she is pullin' hard. I have owned my bike for 3 years and she still surprises me from time to time.
You can't go wrong with this ride.
