Ok, so i took my 899 to Phillip this week and it was blistering About 40 degrees with a blustery northerly wind in off the desert and across Victoria.

Ran Diablo Rosso Corsa’s no warmers as the tyres were from the ambient temperature. I set the up as per the manual for racing and tweaked it to needs throughout the day. I set rider sag as I was doing other but really should have.

As it was hot I sat out the last 3 sessions as I am half the man I to be and suffered some nasty … and had to sit down until I

From the get-go, I found the a lovely, free and high beast that loves flogged in the meaty part of the rev – 8/9rpms to redline. Bike was run in mode.

I am by no means a racer and I this review to be of an everyday perspective so don’t crucify me if you agree with my thoughts and

Engine — Ride bike in the meaty part of the rev and it will reward you with fast acceleration and spit you out of like a slingshot. Like other reviewers have I did find myself working the quite often to stay in the part of the rev range and because the revs so dam quickly at high you have to make sure peripheral vision is on cue so you can see the limiter come on otherwise you’ll off the limiter very easily.

The bike pulls really for it’s size in the high and it took me a few sessions to get used to in the right gears for going corners and coming out of them. being said, the bike is by no a slouch in the lower rpms and I coming out of the two tight right at Phillip Island, the bike pulled very hard low rpms and I am still blown at how quickly it leaps through the rev when you are really on it. lovely The engine note under steam sounds absolutely even with the stock on, the exhaust was popping and farting deceleration and when the DQS was put through paces.

Once the bike was over, it hooked up and railed precision and ease and made very easy. Although the spec sheet put it down as a bit heavy in comparison to it’s it felt extremely light and when flicking through and tight corners.

Suspension – I really should set rider sag before I set the bike up but limited time I worked what I had. Tyre was crap to start out with but as I the suspension settings, things got better and I also found the more planted and was squatting through corners better. felt very nice me and very stable in corners and hard braking.

Maybe high and low speed and dampening would help things up but I’m not Casey Stoner so the Showa suspension works for me.

Electronics – I turned EBC completely off as I it this way for my riding style. ABS was on lowest setting and DTC was on level 2. I feel at anytime the DTC or ABS kick in after leaving darkies out of I know the DTC was doing it’s in the background but felt totally whilst riding. I did crank DTC up to 6 for a to see what it was like and all I felt was a bogging down of the engine the throttle wide open corners but once traction [Read More ]
