I sat on both of those at the show last year. The Versus 1000 had a nice feel to it, however not quite tall enough for my liking.

Both the YAM & the Kwaka are well made machines.

The Tracer is good but is a bit fragile in the looks department, and prone to rust/corrosion
Other bikes: 2017 Speed Triple R, 2010 Street Triple R,  ZXR 400 race bike for track days and Fantic 250 Casa for green lanes, and a Yamaha TDR250 for investment fun

Yes, it's a budget bike. Won't take 3 boxes of camping kit & a fat bastid on tour. Ok for sunny Sundays.

As my mate Anthony has just discovered, bought a GT last year and now realises if he and his missus want to go camping together its over max payload quite quickly

Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

the Husky is definitely the sexiest .... :164:
Yam RD125 DX, Kwak GPZ305, Honda CB400T, 1983 Kwak GT550, Suzuki GSF650 Bandit, Tiger 1050SE .... got there in the end.

I rode an e-boosted Piaggio, weird feeling at first. It is like you have super powers, made my spindly legs feel like they could power me up a alpine stage of the Tour de France. Until the charge runs out that is, then it becomes an overweight mountain bike! :159:

Motorcycle sales have slumped in many markets around the world so I guess the manufactures are trying to figure out ways to keep their doors open. I have no problem with that as long as they keep on making internal combustion motorcycles too. Still love the roar of a triple and rumble of a V-twin.  :300:

I got one of those 48V fold up ones a couple of years back. Fantastic and you work a lot harder than you think. Used to use it for picking up my imports. Arrive on the bike, fold it up and put it in the tail gate, and then drive to my garaging to prep it for sale  :031:
