Well gents about time someone did a proper review of the falco. Now someone has FAST BIKES against VFR800, VTR1000 AND SPRINT ST. Best handling but least comfortable!!!, anyway the quotes as follows--
"NO QUESTION...THE FALCO WILL LEAVE THE OTHER THREE BEHIND" + "WHOLE TIME I RODE THE FALCO I HAD AN ENORMOUS GRIN PLASTERED ACROSS MY MUG".
Couple of points like comfort!, ride position!, lower fairing! to pick up but it's all personal factors as opposed to manufacture factors. All in all a very excellent review and for sure a FALCO coming my way in the new year.

Certainly a better write up than that in Bike magazine last month, but can't say I'm impressed with the rest of the mag. Seems to be written with a target audience of 16 year olds with dicks for brains! Mind you, they said that if it was only down to cost then the Firestorm would win; yet the Falco is CHEAPER than the VTR!? These journalists are a strange bunch......

Yeah, but have you seen how cheaply you can buy a Firestorm? Even Falcos can only be picked up for £5695! That's only £300 LESS than I paid 5 months ago. LESS fer chrissakes.

journalist reviews are worthless once a rider has experienced the subject matter first hand (or should i say "wrist"). i first saw a falco...i then found a falco dealer and performed a road test...loved it...bought it....

Agree with that
Every time I get back on, I remember why I bought it.
Mind you, I didn't have a licence when I bought it
But then the bike appeals to the irrational side of...just about everybody.

I have to admit, read a test, read a few more tests, then having seen a black one in the flesh, ordered a red un(no particular slur on blackuns, just wanted a fastun). So no road test for me, I guess you could say I went by what the Journo's said
In my defence I did find 4 different tests within a week or two, Jan 2000 there wasn't exactly a surplus of demo bikes, and anyway, my dream bike was (and is still something I may one day get) the Laverda Jota, so how wrong could I go with the Falco?
As they say tho, all's well that ends well, and I still love the beast 3 years later!

Well the first bike I ever liked purely from the pictures in magazines was the RSV. I went to my local bike shop - a mate worked there - and saw it and sat on it and wanted it. I hadn't passed my test though.
Couldn't get insured so I bought a ZX6R as soon as I passed my test. Waited patiently for 2 years, 1 nicked bike and one written off bike later I bought my first RSV. I'm still in love. I have never test ridden a bike.
