Does the Terra spin it up easily?
Spin it up?
On tar with standard gearing it is does not really spin the rear on acceleration (dry roads) like other singles. It is a bit soft down low - unless you dial the revs and drop the clutch. It will pick up the front wheel in first (standard gearing) after about 5500 rpm if you give it the berries off the throtle then you can go through the gears and drop it down at about 90-100 kph in 3rd. I am crap at wheelies.
I said it was soft down low - its still makes good traction and can pull up steep inclines suprisingly well and at low revs - weird - but good
