Power
low end lacking as cmotox2 stated, but can be easily fixed, mid range seem to have a real hard hit due to lack of bottom end, but once low end is fixed the power of this motor is awesome!
Suspension
Stock suspension is top's in it's class for the year, modifications can be made to the rear, with just simple oil changes, front forks are pretty good for stock stuff, I heard there are better forks out there, ( maybe the ossa phantom?)overall I have had no problems racing this bike in ahrma events, and finishing in the top of my class with stock suspension.( with only oil and preload spacers added to stock stuff)
Brakes
Stops like a modern bike, the braking on this bike was way before it's time.
Comments
Only aprox. 4500 built world wide, and hard to find. parts are getting very hard to find.
One of the lightest bikes made at the time 205lbs, the ossa phantom is the lightest at 198? I need to verify that though.

Power
It's a little lacking on the bottom end but mid and top range power is truly awesome.
Suspension
Just fine for a vintage bike and track. Changeover to works performance or similar shocks is recommended if you are going to seriusly race this machine.
Brakes
Will stop on a dime and outbrake any other european bike!
Comments
Love this machine for the big gun tracks. It will out pull any 250 in it's class and will even keep pace with most of the big bore machines. It's my pick for the vintage class.
