Torque for days, electric smooth. Epic bike. Most underrated bike ever.
Not my bike below, but WHEN i get another Rex, this is my inspiration.
I loved the ZRX big time. I wish that I had an option of buying a new zrx, a honda cb1300s and a few other big standards that just aren't available in the U.S.
Still, there's something uniquely retro-cool about a cb1100f (or gs or z1 or ...) air cooled beast with usd forks, ohlins shocks and a 190 rear tire. On a gs forum, I found a guy who wes cooleyed up an 80 model. He went with gixxer running gear and gusseted his frame like crazy. very cool ride. I someday need to learn how to post pics.
I do know that it's a ton of work to build one of these things.
