    Hi,

    today the weather was fine so I did the first [i]real[/i] turn with my brand new Vitpilen 701.

    What shall I say: I’m HUGELY impressed! – What a wonderful bike… 😀

    Even though I have to stay under 6.000/min, riding is real fun.

    It’s the same fun as my SM-R 690 (KTM), except
    – it seems to have more power
    – I love the riding position much more as I like street bikes (XBR 500 was my Favorite in the mid 1980)
    – all the “technical goodies” (*) are a lot of fun

    Is there anybody out there who likes track days/”Touristenfahrten”?

    I think I’ll be at the Nürburgring end of May or/and early in June to have a lot of fun with my 701.
    It would be really nice if there’s one more Vitpilen out there… 😀

    P.S.: (*)
    I really like the blipper automatic switch(?), even though it seems to need more rpm (then 6.000) to work fine

    Im glad that you love it! I have 6300kms on mine and I love it more now than when I first got it.

    Hi!

    Be sure that the 701 will do the job… 🙂

    This is the device it will have to fight against: 

    At the moment I think that it will “rock a bit less” but it will have so many advantages… ;->

    The 701 is a lot of fun! – I’m nearly sure that I’ll have a new favourite bike now.
