It's probably one of the easiest bikes out there to ride. The balance is impeccable. The power adicting, and the mileage per gallon quite livable. While there's not a lot of custom parts for it yet, there are enough to keep you content for a while. It loves living at 70 mph and acceleration from there, or anywhere is incredible. I'v yet to top mine out, but bursts to 90 mph are effortless. I think they will spank most other bikes like Harleys, and if not there's always 'the juice' ...lol.... really no need. If you can swing it, buy one, you will not be disappointed.
Hello gambler-m-99;600.I have a chance to buy my first Raider andwas wanting to know if they're anything I should know about these bikes. It is an 08 with 9000 miles and looks to be in great condition. Any advice would be appreciated.
I traded my 06 fz1 that ran low 10s in on a 2009 yamaha Raider with 4800 miles on it. I tell you this bike has massive torque, and will get up and roll. I dont miss the fz1 and I had it for 3 years with plenty of mods.
