    The best gen 1 black frame and swinger with the radial brakes nice bike

    They are reliable I have only had mine let me down once in 8 years ownership and that was the solenoid connections had come loose.easy 10 minute fix

    Try and get af1 to throw in a race can at least

    There are certain things people do like cutting out the brown connector and rectifier wiring mod so they don't break down with those faults...buy a battery optimiser to keep the battery in tiptop condition otherwise if you try and start on a flat battery you'll end up shagging the starter sprag clutch.

    But yes!

    Having owned/ridden both you won't look back!

    Everyone says "oh Italian bikes are really unreliable" most of the time they've never owned one!

    Go for it

    Hmm 16,000 rpm r6

    Big grunty Mille

    Well , both have their places , one of each for me , but as you muricans say ,no substitute for cubes

    No replacement for displacement

    Etc
