Assuming that the bike handles, I would shred met rr rear inside 800 miles and doubt the bridgestone rs will fare much better.

Bags? bags on a gem is like cosmetics on an old whore, (Orwell, 1984)

however, do what you want.


edit: his sx whatever is the H2
Scout I still have no idea WTF you are trying to say anytime you type on this forum. Are you using using Google translate to switch your posts to English from another language?

I think your worried about tires for a big bike saying good tires don't exist for them? Busa's, Zx14r's, Concours 14 etc have been around for quite awhile and haven't had tire issues. Plenty of guys ride these and cut up curves with them without any issues.

The second thing I think I'm getting is you have an issue with the bags. Well first off if you don't like them don't buy it. Second the bags are detachable. Third believe it or not some people ride their bikes more than on the same "loop" and can use the bags to haul gear or clothes or tents or the wife's purse.

It's odd that your concern is with the looks, tires and weight of a bike you're not buying. Yet you refuse to change the oil in your bike. That blown engine may be lighter, prettier and easier on tires but its definitely not as fun to ride while it's internals have grenaded.

Don't lick the hand that wipes.

I've still got my supermoto race bike for track fun. Ever sense I got that the ZX10-R only made it to the track a couple times. I'll still take the sx out on the track on occasion.
$22k and they are going to give me the bags at dealer cost.

They have a left over 2016 H2 sitting there that is very tempting. but I think I'm going to gamble on the H2 SX having enough power to be a blast.
I could have got a sweeeeet deal on 16 h2. But what stopped me is it doesn’t haven the internal imu my Gen 5 does.
