    You can see more of a Ducati Monsta in it....It was a lovely ride Chris...good throttle responce....You can feel the power underneath you....felt a bit unnerved by the rear brake but the engine braking is excellent...never felt out of control....

    To be honest chris I dont know if it has a slipper clutch...I just felt that it was very positive on throttle off and on...beautiful...
