    Manage a quick ride today, I've cancer, so have to pick my moments, enjoyed the Spada very much, smooth, slick gear changes, positive handling, reasonable performance compared to my last bike (2017 Duke)
    The only thing is the bars are a bit too forward for me, Question (again) Can I change to top triple clamp or clip on bars to have more comfortable bars? TIA

    Murdo, going to that that mod, bought a second hand top clamp $40NZD, and of course ali express for bolt on clamps, bars and grips, got a mate that will back fill the clamp with ally weld to overcome the thin wall section
    Designed and made some adaptor plates which will to lower the foot pegs by 4 cm, why! cause I can...

    Its one of the best small bikes ever built, they seem to keep running indefinitely as long as fresh oil is fed to them on a regular basis.. and they are regularly ridden. Their only weak point seems to be owners have a habit of leaving them sitting idle for extended periods of time and then blame the bike for not starting . Congratulations, love the bike and it will love you back.
