HP2S

Love the power, quickshift and the cackle and pops on deceleration, bodywork looks ok too :wink: ...mirrors are useless (s1000rr seem recommended) and bars a little bit low.

Very nice indeed. What are your plans for it? Track days?

Cheers,

Paul
You really need only two tools: WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and it should, use WD-40. If it moves and shouldn't, use the tape.

Nice!
Off BikeSales?
Without the balance shaft of the r12s, I've always been keen to know if there a noticeable vibration/harshness compared to the r12s?

Thanks Paul,Chris, I really don't need track days as I'm just a few kilometres from some of the best traffic free bike roads you'll find...but maybe :wink:

justcruising certainly not noticed vibration difference to R12s, but it's probably not run in yet fully...power/acceleration is another level completely though as are brakes :shock:
