||Review of the 2004 Honda 919|
Naked Power Head-Turner
|The fifth bike in my life is probably the most enjoyable.|
Review of the 919 submitted on 2005-12-15.
I bought a Matte Uranium 919 in October of ī04. I was immediatly pleased with the layout of the controls. My feet simply īfoundī the pegs and I was off.
As I broke the bike in I could tell there was power waiting to be unleashed.
I finally got the miles on it to find out what she could do and I was quite impressed. Itīs not a supersport, but it puts out some serious effort. The low-end torque is great and itīll come up if you want it too. The power continues to climb without effort. I found that wind blast will keep you off the throttle though. I ended up getting a Honda wind screen to solve that. Itīs a small sporty screen so it doesnīt detract from the look of the bike. After doing that I now have to watch myself because that soaring speedometer just keeps going.
Iīve noticed a little instability in tight corners, but itīll hold true. It just feels a little like the front wants to walk out.
The exaust seems to roll up the back of the bike a bit at traffic lights. Probably due to the pipes location. But itīs a small price to pay.
I took it to Bike Week ī05 in Daytona Beach and didnīt see another like it. It is unique, if nothing else.
Iīve had cruisers and supersports, this is the best all-around bike Iīve owned. Itīs comfortable, quick and fast. And that green really grows on you.
