I had a Kawaski 650R, and some small scooters, figured I'd be happy with
a big scooter, wanted a Burgman 400 or Majesty 400, couldn't afford them,

You wouldn't have to guess what is going to happen if you provoke the TC
and learn how it behaves/works, just like with ABS, then you can learn how
to use it and even take advantage of it.

This is spot on, but I believe there is a torque curve drop in the 4500 to 6500 range.

I never thought that I'd like to have TC on my FZ6 (98hp), but I sure could

A used 2013 FZ8 would cost twice as much as a 2008-2009 FZ6, it's got the
