Dang Alex, that's a nice looking bike.  How do you like that suspension?

@Rjg967 had one tuned real nice, I think he ran a zx10 rear shock.   We did many track days with Moto Forza. I had my Ducati1098R (was fully tuned and stupid fast). The FZ09 was just butter smooth. Plenty fast up to 120-130 ish?  I am sure Bob will chime in. Great bike for sure

Yep, fantastic machine. Bought mine in early August of 2014.

I had mine tuned by Vcyclenut, Akropovic Carbon, RaceTech emulators and valving up front, tuned ZX10R shock, airbox mods, woodcraft clip-ons and rear sets and more. It was an absolute weapon on short tracks and could hold its own on bigger tracks. And to top it off it was perfectly comfortable for 300 mile days. As far as top speed goes, tuned I hit 156, which is quite a thrill on a naked bike. They are governed at 130 stock.

And yeah, did surprisingly well off-road. Took it up more than one fire road. Lol

So this is 100% vouching of the quality of this motorcycle! GLWS

Alex, I rode for a short ride in mid city Lisbon Portugal-----scared the crap outta me....Filipe's  bike was fully uncorked and tuned. I will continue to stick with dirtbikes. My superbike days are long gone!!! BTW glad to see you are still around the SDAR site!!
