BOOTH HY SAYS...

Fast Bikes - - CORE TEST | RULING THE ROADS -

Ev­ery­thing about this bike is sharp; the aes­thet­ics, the noise, the rid­ing po­si­tion, the power. And woe be­tide any brave soul who doesn't keep their wits sharp on this weapon. Ballistic is the only word I can use to de­scribe the power de­liv­ery. The throt­tle re­sponse is space age thanks to the fly-by-wire sys­tem. You only have to think about shift­ing up for the quick­shifter to seam­lessly slot you into the next gear and once you get used to do­ing clutch-less down­shifts the au­to­matic blip­per makes you feel and sound like a World Su­per­bike rider (more so than the heated grips and the cruise con­trol do, any­way).
