Bike starts, goes, handles and stops as you would expect and everything works as it should. There are no bad noises or smoke issues and it revs hard and changes through the gears without a problem. It has hot dog mufflers fitted at the moment (which sound great), however I am supplying an as new pair of conical mufflers with it. Has recently had a professional paint job which looks amazing. The advertising back in the day called this model a 400 on steroids.
