I've had this for four years now. It has excellent power and handling. It turns on a dime, leans easily.
The only negative is long rides but it's not a tourer. I did 900 km. one day and wrist, back and derrier were numb.
I did have trouble with ISC-V and replaced it. I check gixxer forums for issues with the ISC, regulator/rectifier and rough idle.
It's apparently an issue with '07 and '08. Overall, I am happy with this baby.
Upgrades/Accessories: Puig double bubble, Pazzo shorty levers, Two Brothers full racing exhaust, Power Commander V, Motovation sliders, HID headlamps and Competition Werkes Fender eliminator.
