Thoughts from the Staff

“Despite its relatively small 398cc engine, the SM is a very entertaining motorcycle, whether you are commuting in an urban environment or heading out into the twisties on the weekend. About the only place that the 400 feels out of place is on freeways, especially if the trip is longer than 10 or 15 minutes.” Blake Conner - Editor, Cycle World Magazine
