    I find it ironic that the incredibly rude personal comments about Les were made by someone bearing an astonishing resemblance to a Monica Lewinsky dress accessory.

    Not an overly-informative video but a chance to have a decent look at the bike.

    An L2? If I had that dosh to spend on a bike I'd much rather pick up an L0 with a decent zorst already fitted, maybe even a power commander, for mid-teens. Then throw a Brembo RCS radial master cylinder, decent pads, and Ohlins cartridges and shock at it.....leaving me with a better bike and cash in my pocket compared to buying a new L2. I'd then spend the extra cash on a spare set of rims for all the track days I'd sign up for...........where all my smart thinking is completely undone by the fact that some smart fearless lil' fucker on a Hyosung 250 can prolly ride better.......reality is a cold heartless bitch.

    Suzuki should have put a nice Yoshimura pipe on the end. Would look way better.

    Theres so many great choices in the big bike market aye. But IMO if you narrowed it down to one litre sportsbikes with an across the frame 4cyl layout then the big bang Yam is hard to beat for comfort, power delivery & all round road usabilty. If power to weight is your thing then the BMW is a no brainer, To me the gixxer & the honda sit in the middle of the fence, whilst the Kwaka & MV lean toward the "character sports" department.

    We're spoiled for choice, which is a good place to be.

    The R1 cross plane power delivery isn't my cup of tea, in race mode (which is where most people think they'll go faster), the bike is snatchy and too responsive to the slightest throttle touch. Easiest to notice when you try and wheelie the thing. I'm convinced it's why it now comes with traction control too, they used to highside real nice.

    Who can afford the BMW, RSV4, MV, 1198?

    The Kawasaki is a massive leap forward for them, it can now keep up.

    The Honda although slightly more aggressive than it used to be, doesn't capture my picture of a litre bike for performance. It's too sensible.

    The Gixxer doesn't have the best finish, but it's bullet proof, animalistic (no where near as much as a K5/6 which is my thou of choice), and cheap.
