"Honest Mark" review


Recommended Posts

Having slept overnight I want to add 

If you put a stock Gen2 against a stock Gen3 then performance wise handling and braking Gen3 is a much better bike and you get electronics thrown in :hyper:

I want to be clear yes as Bruce Dunn has proved this is a fast bike 

0-60 in 2.7 and 0-100 in about 5 seconds and should br enough on the road for anybody :shock:

and it does it really easily 

but I want more :rolleyes:

Did you have to sign some form of "Non-disclosure agreement" to have the test ride....:takeball:

perhaps your old Gen2 is just clapped-out :empathy:

BHM

I signed a form Ian did not bother to read the blurry text all I knew I was not going to drop it - no credit card given 

No secrets divulged any more than them journos at Sywill aerodrome 

 

It could be clapped out but still makes 15 hp more than yours :bees:  my dataloggers figures don't say so :rolleyes:

At 85,000 still got 190hp at zx14 dyno day Ian was there 

That's where we showed the seeds with lung cancer from Mr Luckys old smoker

truth be told it probably has lost a bit - just as well its getting a refresh

Bike magazine ran 0-60 in 2.6 and 4.92 0-100 in 2008

So it's slower, slower accelerating, you still need to re-work the suspension and replace the wheels.  But you get gadgets and fridge handles.

All for £16,500 and a slap in the face trade in on your faster bike.

Why didn't you sign there and then :rolleyes:
