BOOTHY’S BLUFF

Fast Bikes - - FEATURE -

I re­ally liked the ZX-7R. I must ad­mit when I first sat on it, it seemed way too soft and a lit­tle bit cramped, but out on the road I had a right laugh razz­ing it around. The low seat meant get­ting your knee down was a piece of cake and the soft set-up gave it a re­ally plush feel – okay it was maybe a lit­tle too soft, and when we upped the ante and started push­ing on a bit on some of the faster roads it did tend to make a few shapes. But even then it wasn’t skit­tish and fright­en­ing, and it all added to the fun if you ask me. Low down fu­elling, on this par­tic­u­lar bike, had room for im­prove­ment, but once the en­gine was singing ev­ery­thing did ex­actly as it was sup­posed to do. It sounded great, went well and filled me full of con­fi­dence al­most all of the time. It’s a yes from me.
