Anybody seen the review of used Falco's in the January Ride magazine?It was pitched against Kawasaki ZRX1100,Yamy YZF 1000 Thunderace and Honda's CB1000 X-11 whatever that is!
Amazingly (or not to us in the know)it got the verdict, anyway buy your own magazine and have a look.

Just seen it, nice review but what impressed me was the shine on that bike puts mine to shame.

Quite a good review I thought. It got just about everything right but who was the bloke who said it was uncomfortable?

I suppose there's always one.

Pretty near perfect review IMHO. I'll keep it to read whenever I feel like changing the bike! The Falco write-up's a pantheon of superlatives and it emerges as a very fine machine indeed (dealer backup excepted). Maybe the real character of a bike emerges better in a used test. After all, what chance for the unchanging Falco among the everlasting hype of new model launches?

Well done RiDE!


btw Is a CB1000 with 1137cc really a CB1100? And did 1999 have a W in it?
