Yeah, those are actually dual intake scoops to increase the volume of intake air while raising the airbox pressure to give the volumetric efficiency a little boost. Out back, a coil-over monoshock takes care of business with naught but the obligatory spring preload. The subframe is upswept a bit, but not so much as to give the R a strong nose-down look so the posture is a bit more neutral, and you can pencil me in as a fan. The third entry in the line is a middleweight option seeking to battle in a crowded, and competitive, segment. The muffler angle has been specially designed to channel the resonating roar of your bike directly to you, giving you an immersive aural experience you can only get with an inline four engine.

The anchors rely on some serious hardware in the form of dual, 310 mm discs and four-piston calipers up front with a 240 mm disc and uni-pot anchor out back. That gives the water-cooled lump a total of 94 ponies at 12,000 rpm and 47 pound-feet of torque at 8,500 rpm for your riding enjoyment. The bike game is no different. If they do they will discover a surprisingly sweet handling naked with an engaging inline four motor and bags of easy-going charm.

A slipper clutch couples the six-speed transmixxer to engine power for some backtorque mitigation and a lighter clutch lever pull. Its smooth action is compatible for a less experienced rider as it is for more seasoned twist tube yanker. The shock has 10-stage preload adjustment, but like the forks there is little need to deviate from its factory settings for quick road riding. The redline tops out at a full grand higher, and it generates five percent more horsepower above 10,000 rpm. The suspension action is smooth and progressive, but a little budget in overall feel.

Another boon to handling can be found in the rims; specifically in the hollow Y-spokes on the 17-inch rims that shed just over two pounds in total, and that lowers the gyroscopic effect so the wheels have a lower resistance to changing the angle on the axis. As for extras, I loved the luggage pack, as the tank bag has the chance to put your phone there and allows touching without taking it off, and the rear bag is pretty big, compared to the pack cost. Oh, and those cheek fairings that look so cool? The Kawasaki Ninja 650 on the other hand has a comparatively sharper styling all around. The best-selling is cheaper at £6349, however that said its retro cousin, the , is pricier at £7099. The system maintains real wheel traction and can also be switched off.
