it's my first bike from 2016 June. i found 3 features make this bike not so perfect. I still love it, will give it a high review.
1. I found the riding is not very smooth in first and 2nd gear compare to other bikes.
i had a big pulling back feeling when i turn throttle just a bit to speed up. and a sudden stop feeling when I release it. I asked my friend to lend me their bikes just to test it but it doesn't happen in other bikes (cbr600, r6, monster821, ninja 300, EXC 500)
is it normal due to the relatively low price? or my bike has some problem.

2. another problem is , the passenger seat hit my butt sometime that makes it not so comfortable. maybe it's designed to look better. i did sit on kawasaki z 600 it's more comfortable. dont know about cb 500

3. the bike is fast, it goes up to 220 km that makes it really sports and fun, but suggest to ride below 200 km because of the wind. the wind start to block me hard from 180 km and makes me don't wanna go faster. the designing of this bike goes to comfort more than speedy. still, definitely a good bike to choose since we dont ride faster than 200 km often.

this is the only 3 downside I experience please feel free to discuss.

the rest of the features are above good, I really enjoyed it. it's powerful enough to do stunt and fast enough to ride with 600cc(non pro, below 200km). good price. really like the shape compare to all other brand

p.s becareful when you do oil change!!! follow all the correct steps

1. I agree, definitely shifting doesn't feel good in this bike, even my former 1989 Suzuki (a piece of iron with two tires) had a smoother gearbox. When I select first gears it sounds awful, specially when cold.

2. n/c

3. Naked bikes are definitely not meant to go that fast. Beyond 140km/h wind is a major disconfort, in this and any other naked bike will be the same.

have fun!

sounds like your talking about two different things dude,,most bikes are a bit clunky shifting into first,,its normal,,but these bikes do have an abrupt excell and decell point which can be annoying,,and also calmed down from an ecu re-flash. dont have a clue what your talking bout with the seat,,unless your like 6' 5" and this has to be the easiest bike i have changed oil on,, a 3 year old could do it.
i would like to have a conversation with you but i think you are full of SH#*%*t,,, unless i am wrong and if I am I apologize,,but your saying your fzo7 is capable of speeds of almost 140mph,??Really,,, i have to call bs on that one,,i dont think these bikes can go that fast,,anuyone eles out there clamming the same ??? would love to hear from you

Official topspeed is 214km/h or 133mph but because bike speedos are usually a lot out at high speeds, it's common to see 225 or a tad more on your speedo at full blast.
