I wish I'd not sold it! It had a 916 seat/tail, Aprilia fairing, USD FZR forks with R1 Blue Spot calipers. Wasn't particularly fast down the straights, but was very nimble.


Yeah Nimble was definitely it's quality, proper A road Blaster.

You can't see any of it and the lines are awful to me. Just my opinion of course. Was it eighties, I didn't like much from those years.

You'd have to take the panels off to clean it & then you wouldn't see what you'd done anyway. (91/92)so close to the eighties.

My brother briefly owned a CBR1000 jelly mould or 'plastic fantastic' as he used to call it. Very capable, but utterly forgettable after riding. I think the Ducati panels looked better than the Honda's and at least it had a real motorcycle engine buried underneath! ;)

I don't think you need to be rich to own a paso, finding one that hasn't been used as a ships anchor would be the challenge.
