The Fazer 600 has always been an affordable, highly capable and deceptively fast machine. It’s comfortable – more upright than the SV – affords good weather protection and takes winters in its stride.
It never got better looking than original iteration, as ridden by the Crazy 88 in Kill Bill. As with the SV, £1,200 can get you a very nice one, but look closely before buying.
