First ride - Plenty of questions
Hey all, so I probably should have said g'day in the introductions sections, but G'day!
Question 1 - who rides this bike? I'm 42 and have been riding a Yamaha FZ6S for about 6 years. Mainly for commuting. Love the screen, top box, heaps of power to cruise and overtake comfortably without having to drop down gears. So now, I don't need to commute, so was thinking of this little beauty for weekend pleasures. Will I be disappointed by the lack of power coming from a 600?
I unfortunately couldn't ride the 390 hard or very well. It had 3 km on it, brand new tyres obviously, so was told by the dealer to take it easy, don't rev it too much. I only got it up to about 7000rpm a couple of times.
Question 2 - what is the 'redline' on these. I assume the shift light is adjustable because 7000 didn't seem to be giving it much at all?
I wouldn't call myself a great rider either, so wasn't confident enough to lean it over and explore it's limits with brand new tyres.
So my plan is now to go back in a week or two when more people have ridden it, and scrubbed in the tyres for me, then I guess I'll have a better idea about its ride ability and performance.
