    Ha ha... he certainly has a sense of humour, but do you trust him enough to accept the bike has only done 33,000km even though the odo reads 56,000km?

    "Never been revv’d high"... "Rides easy, corners like its glued to the floor, and the crackle of the pipes when you roll off the throttle at high speed will give you a semi."..."This weapon however has all the right gear to knock that number well above 100." ...
    So does this guy think 100km/hr is high speed?

    With everyone "in awe" and "dropping their knickers", he obviously does not have enough reason to "knock" the speedo over 100

    Yeah, realised that after I posted.
    Mistakes were made and like James Ashby, I was on the sauce.

    'customised' fz6 streetfighter
    Someone relieve me of this outrageous chick magnet. Legends once spoke of the early FZ6 models not being powerful enough and quickly became laden with the weight of frenzied women, piling onto the pillion and slathering all over the riders visor. We lost many a good FZ rider in the early days. RIP boys. Luckily this specimen has the grouped fuel injection system, which supplied 98HP off the assembly line. This weapon however has all the right gear to knock that number well above 100. Because of this power, no issue with frothy women leaping on your back


    lol...wut?

    Dunno if that's a barcgain, I've found two others linked in the same ad that are cheaper, newer, less K's.
    I get that it's got some nice bits on it but I think it's more like average price rather than a nice price.

    98HP, that puts it in 600cc sport bike territory... in the late 90's

    Or any French bike.

    *yawn.

    What the fucking fuck?!?!?

    $24,000 for a 32 year old bike that has poorly fitting CBR600Fi race fairings and a China special headlight.

    I think there's one too many zero's in his price... maybe two too many.

    Not even the R would get that, or the Matrix Movie special. But you just can't get mad at the 916/996/998 shape;
