Decent reviews.

I got a little chuckle when they said that it was decided for reaching 100 mph a 650 was required, considering I've been making Ton-Up 535 Bullets for nearly ten years now.  :)


They didn't seem too happy about the handling when pushed hard, likening it to a "blancmange".

 But in general, they seemed to like it well enough for the price.
Fair enough.

I'm wondering why the brace on the Interceptor handle bars.

That gives you a location to hang your man-purse while you are riding.  ;)

The original Interceptors had handlebars like that, so it is probably a nod to the old styling.

Ok Jerry! ;)
The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows. FZ
