My first bike was a KTM 504 with that bloody K4 Rotax engine. Was a bitch to kick start and split the soles of my new Nike tekkies in half...
That motor was so heavy that it was almost impossible to wheelie - but it would wheel-spin up to third gear. ;D

If that solid front disc is stainless steel, braking in the rain could be quite a challenge :)
