Ja I think I would buy this bike if the price was right.


But I would much rather buy Rommel's XR  :drif:
How can I be lost if I've got nowhere to go?

Looks as good as new!

Must be one of the last imported, with that colour?

If it's mint, it might be worth up to R 55k! They are becoming very scarce! Quite a number of extras, but that crash bar...no!

I already have one, but wouldn't mind a newer model!

I would pay max R 45k for it, without the tank. Will keep my IMS!

Six DR's and 182000 km later and I have not experienced ONE problem. NOT ONE.
You must be the unluckiest guy out there.

There were a batch of inferior gear sets from China, affecting a small number of DRs, with only one case in SA. 🙀

Must have been Ganjora's DR.😔

Believe it or not,  yes.
Throttle and steering not as 'twitchy'.
It is the undisputed legend.

Starting the reassembly of the SM610 tomorrow.

Once done it will be fun to do a side by side roll-on dice between the two. I can even do it by myself if I use a GPS and do the exact same test. See what the accelaration / top speed is over a relatively short distance whilst the bikes are still accelarating.

If this one is as quick as the other SM, I'm expecting a close "dual"!

How does the XRR feel, in comparison to the other SM?
