As an actual owner of this machine I felt compelled to add a few comments. I am a UK rider so don\īt know if it\īs the same as the US model. We just get 1400GTR on our fairings. The bike is superb. It\īs a purpose built tourer and as such I doubt that top end speed is important. I\īve just watched a video on YouTube of a 1400GTR doing 250 Km/h which is around 150 mph in real money. I suspect there\īs not much left after this. I\īve done about 2000 miles on mine so far - most of it in and around the roads of NE Scotland. It performs very well overall and handles the straights and turns comfortably. I\īm still trying to find the optimum set up for the suspension as I find the factory settings a little inadequate for me. If anyone\īs found a good setting for the front/rear shocks I\īd be gratefull for the info. Please feel free to email me at saracengb@gmail.com.
I love the way it pulls in any gear and doesn\īt need to be up around the 6000 rpm mark before you start to accelerate. I\īve found it comes in about 3000-3500 which is what you need for climbing - no need to drop right down the box either as it\īll motor up gradients in 4th without any problems. I\īve got a picture of someone popping a wheelie on one of these but haven\īt got round to seeing if I can do it yet! Give it time.
