Ive had a Black, Orange and several Green gen1s. Love that bike.
With a ss build they are good for 181 hp. Super light, short and no "nannies".
That's a real mans bike. (or womans)

Chassis gets chattery on fast corner entry, otherwise great bike.

Be wary of the starter auguring itself out of the cases and ruining the engine. I think there is service bulletin for that.

Ive had one starter ruin a motor, and two more when rods let go. YMMV
