“I had a K2 for about eight years. Pur­chased it off a friend that had raced it in the ARRC Su­per­stock races in Aus­tralia. Can’t com­ment on the han­dling of an un­touched one as mine had Öh­lins shock, car­tridges and springs, and steer­ing damper. It han­dled well. Am­ple power though a lit­tle grumpy at town speeds. Would get hot in traf­fic on re­ally hot days; 38°C and up. I rarely rode in town, mostly to get out of town to the glo­ri­ous twistys around the Yarra Ranges. All up I rate it highly as a fun toy, prob­a­bly more suited to the track than the road, but good fun.”
