Rolling on the Autobahns

Prologue: In mid 2012 I had an opportunity to visit friends I made in Amsterdam my visit there some ago. It was supposed to be just new year celebrations and nothing As always we ended up in a night named Panama or something to that on the 26th.

We got talking to a of biker girls and guys and had such a good time, I up the next day afternoon at my friend-s trying to remember how I got back or exactly happened after a of shots of brain cell tequila. After an hour I some really loud outside and my friend informed me in a of factly way that we have to in 3 hours to Nuremberg in Germany. we were all flying there and my buddy what-s going on.

The he gave me was that we promised to the motorcycle gang in Nuremberg for event organised to test out new I still don-t remember about Germany though. But oh I told him I am good with the and asked him if we are flying easy He did look funny at me and said riding with the gang and I am to join their tech driving behind the bikes in a I was more than happy to do till I saw what rides had.

My eyes popped out when I saw 3 CBR600RR-s and a ninja Zx6. I resist asking for a short run on those bad boys. Mind and almost jumping in excitement, them if they had anything I ride along with

Came out a well used (they call it 650R in and Australia) from the van. owned by the guy driving the van he wasn-t all about letting me ride it I was a little disappointed that I am on a bike and my new found buddies are crotch-rockets.

I was definitely in for a surprise! Now along for the review :-)

Everybody can for the model-s specs and figure out the capacity, torque and pretty everything else. The review is about my personal

of our reviewers us experiences on this motorbike for 700 kilometers.

Looks: It was a 2011 it seems and was not bad at all! The 650R like a cross between the lil one and the ZX series. The seat was a bit a higher for me I am just 1.75 m tall, but my jacked it down and was quite compared to the CBR and the gauges looked All digital with a clock

The exhaust was under the bike than behind it. Not sure why did that, but I ain-t complaining. The color compared to the all black was quite striking.

I guess on the highways can miss looking at me I also had matching orange jacket and helmet.

Performance: I the 650R is a beginner to mid range when it comes to power It had some 65 BHP pumping out of the parallel-twin on 6 gears. And more than torque to do a nice quarter wheelie (just kidding, do that on a highway!).

It definitely keep up with the CBR-s and the but can hold it-s own when it to highways with speed and city streets. I felt the gear to be a little shorter my expectations, but felt the torque was for the amount of throttle to zip off real Do remember to be easy with the This bike may not be a racer, but it has power to go from 0 to 80 Km/h in 3 seconds.

I noticed the torque fading slightly on the 5th gear and on the 6th I felt I may not have enough torque in situation. Guess this is made for mid range torque. But to worry about that when hitting the 5th gear I was past 160 Km/h on the speedo and I to hit close to 249 Km/h on a long of empty highway.

One thing I was how easy it was to handle this in city streets and in heavy I had no trouble at all, but the CBR-s struggling with engines up dangerously with not much air into their radiators. I this bike was made daily commutes in mind. I got to show to the racers how cool I am in beating them 😀

The ride: The planned to take the E35 from till Frankfurt and hit the another which I can-t remember to The total distance was 700 kilometers or close to that. As I said the handles very well in traffics, but once we hit the highway and the section with no speed the CBR-s just flew this little guy.

I did try to keep it above 200 Km/h of the time, but the fairing was not adjusted and the wind was blowing straight my helmet. Not one of the best feelings icy cold air pretty much your face in 30 mins. The is very stable at speeds 175 Km/h, but starts feeling you are sliding straight on grease that and gives you thoughts of into the next truck you

Maybe it was just my mind safe with me and I was imaging the sliding sensation. And the vibrations on the peg and handle bar were not nice at After an hour of high riding, I felt like my and hands were numb. The one I dreaded much on this was the feeling the cross winds blow you off the road!

It does a cool 200 kilogram, but it wasn-t me the confidence about the cross Now for the brakes. The bike had this ABS brakes. They do their job well, but sometimes, it feels the ABS might make you crash. it-s just me since I rode any motorcycle with

The gear shifts felt to say the least. The clutch was not too soft or too Just the right amount. is an individual preference I suppose. I was with the clutch release to letting the lever go all the way out.

The sound is not bad, but could-ve better. The guy still had the stock on them and it was more like a up CBR600RR sound. I really care about that The fuel economy was not bad either.

I do close to 450 kilometers on a full pushing the bike beyond 180 most of the time!

Would I this bike? Yes I would. I get one myself too if I could just thinking about race CBR-s. If you like riding, but want to get those dangerously super sport bikes, is a good one to stick with. on Indian roads it-s not to ride too fast, but atleast you have more than power to go faster than much everything on the highway.

If you are conscious I don-t think bike would do you justice. face it, the engine-s almost the of those 800cc cars and run on just fumes. Also if you keeping your speeds below 100 km/h, I don-t this bike would be

It may not be made for races, it-s not for slowness either. According to the the bike-s performance is exceptional if are between 150 km/h and 190 km/h. riding at 60 would be on the low end of the 3rd gear and not fair on the bike!

P.S: I this review was not from on Indian roads, but this is all I can up. About the event, it ended up a boring one with everybody off their bikes and cars, but did get beer 😉
