It’s short wheelbase and moderate rider lean angle make it feel tight and aggressive. It has oodles of lush twin power that just makes you wanna wind it on. It has the wet multiplate clutch so no Ducati clickety clack which makes it feel more controllable and maybe reserved compared with the Hyper.
That lean angle would kill my wrists and back after a few hundred kms, which is why I guess they call it a Cafe Racer. Ride it to the Cafe and back on weekends and you’ll be grinning the whole time, try and run the Nullabor and you’ll be wishing you were on a Multistrada.
Either way I still want one and would welcome it for the commute in summer, got plenty of looks on my short stint and it makes the best noise short shifting up through the gears.
