You could commute on it, tour on it, track it. It would do everything. .



‘Could’ and ‘Would’ are two very different things.

Any additional bike needs to be light, cheap, very agile and fun.

That is a proper piece of kit. Not cheap for a single though.

There aren't many of them about. I've found a 2012 model for £6,250 so I guess they hold their prices.

Street fighters are obviously like rocking horse poo. I have tentatively enquired about two in the last couple of weeks only to be told they sold within hours of being advertised.

Cheers, Blade. I want to try one first though. Its one bike i have never ridden but it means a dealership to at least try one.

I really enjoyed the ride on Nutz KTM last year and its a very similar set up.
