4. Four-strokes make you lazy, there isn't any way around it. Even 250Fs allow you to not use the clutch if don't want to. The torque helps you out of corners, the engine braking helps you slow down, and the tractable power keeps the bike planted. This bike doesn't do these things on its own, yet it forces you to do them and, therefore, makes you a better rider. You have to have throttle control, clutch control, proper braking technique and feel, and a good grip on the bike with your lower body. After riding this bike, four-strokes feel so easy to ride and overall, you're a better motorcycle rider.
