I work with a guy that has one. he drives it about 90 miles one way to work every day and loves it. great gas milelage. it's two years old and has over 100k. he says no problems so far. he's a small guy though. i can't imagine that if your any taller than 5'8"-5'10" you would be very comfy in it for long trips.

Mobile phone does NOT mean your car is a moving phone booth!! Hang up and drive!!

They are fun to drive, but have them take the run flat tires off and put normal, hi performance rubber on the car....it will ride MUCH better and just carry spare tire in a can, in case you get a flat...the stock tires cause it to ride to harsh....

guy at work tracks his all the time, says it's great. From what i hear it's the SV650 of the car track.

Got a ride in one at Deals Gap. That guy embarrased a group of vetts up the Gap. ...and nearly made me soil my leathers!!
