Underpowered and a bit pointless? Maybe.... but no more so than your review!
that's not a review, just a disparaging remark, having ridden the R850R I can say it deserves better.
Won't waste time here again, if this review is typical.
Much underated all round get you anywhere bike. I never thought that this bike was my kind of bike as I always had sports bikes. I currently have an 08 Blade as well but the more you ride the r850r it seems to take you under its spell.
the r850r is a hateful bike, rarely ridden without faults occuring, spent more time being fixed than able to ride the thing, bought it originally for a trike conversion, kept braking down so often i ended up flogging it off cheap !
Great Bike. Completed 20k on it around Europe and at home 2 up with touring luggage or stripped of panniers, scratching Welsh coastal lanes. I love the Spitfire' like styling of this late model and its stance on the road. I have read a lot of thesde negative remarks over the yeras ( and ridden a lot of bikes) but dont really get it? I could trace it all back to a souless miniscule excuse of a review on MCN website that set the trend.
I now have a 94 900ss which is awesome in terms of weight and power but I would be hard pushed to decide on which one to sell should the need arise.
