VIN tag states that this bike was manufactured by Rapid Motion - is that peculiar to the Australian market ? Were Rapid Motion responsible for making sure it was compliant?

Old mate at Springwood has one as well that he has recently imported from Japan - it was on his facefart feed. Be interesting to see the condition and what he asks for it. This one might be a bit rich for me given you have to throw in the $1,000 to get it to Qld. Given the other one in Qld was on the market for years at $22,000 I wish them well.

Actually the other one was only on the market for $22k for about a year or so. It was originally listed a few years ago at $29k Shocked

Whilst it's pretty to look at, it won't be anything special to ride until the Anteras have been chucked away. But then you've got a bike that'll give you as much pleasure as anything else and probably more at that sort of money.

As someone who can't afford to outlay $4k on a set of light wheels, and I've never had the pleasure of riding a bike with light wheels, I am quite satisfied with the handling on my SB6 with the Antera wheels. I appreciate that it may be much better with light wheels, but I don't know any different so it is what it is. The bike still handles and goes way better than I can ride it anyhow.

In saying that..... I'd still love to get a set of light wheels for my SB6 one day when I can afford such luxury Laughing Wink

I've got superlight wheels on my Laverda 750 (when I had them repainted I was amazed how light they were) and can't say I notice anything different - then again I am old and slow.........
