"Engine performance is slightly marred, however, by abrupt off-idle throttle response. Rather than delivering proportionate acceleration any time the grip is twisted from closed to open, the bike lurches forward as though the throttle had been turned much farther. You can get used to this idiosyncrasy after a while, but you shouldn’t have to."

"Side effects may include: Mild kidney explosions...Testicular cranberrying... And Rectal hallucinations.
