My final two bikes when deciding what to buy were the hyabusa and the k12. I rode both and concur with your comments. The hyabusa is incredibly fast yet in top gear roll ons the k12 will out accelerate it in certain rev ranges. I look at the hyabusa now and am very glad I bought a k12. I had my daughter on the back of the hyabusa when I took it for a test ride, accelerating hard up a motorway on ramp when we got back to the dealer she said. ‘Dad I could hardly breathe and I nearly wet myself’:)

Hey Phantom. How come you have no brakes when you leave a downhill drive😲

I agree with the tyre pressure has on handling. I run 36 rear 34 front. Lose a couple of psi and it’s like riding on wet sand. Taking your weight off the bars on less than ideal surfaces lets the suspension do its thing and also gives more feeling to handling inputs.
