I'm returning to riding after an extended lay off (over 20 years). Previous bike, all from the 80's were Suzuki PE250, Suzuki GSXR400 and a Yamaha TT600.

Have had my 390 since March 2014 and am really enjoying it, especially after the run in period, (can rev it right out now).

Really love the light weight, nimble handling, acceleration and exhaust note once past 7000 rpm.

Not so happy with the jerkiness around 5000 rpm, the hand grips and the average quality of the switch gear. Also the tacho could be a little larger.

Before I purchased the 390 I also considered and subsequently discounted the Ninja 300 and CB500F.
