    So, i have an SP5. I had an SP4 before it, (3 lots of fork seals on the “ must have “ ÷hlins, and in all honestly a paint scheme that i didnt like(big white number board on fairing)).

    I did a few upgrades to the SP5,newer ÷hlins that actually peformed better than the revalved showas and that was it.Perfect

    I then got carried away, but thats i another story that those of you that know my bike will testify to, but the main thing was the engine! It is awesome. Parts bin special? Maybe. 1992 corsa engine with a fan.... yes please!

    My favourite, looks.....SP3, but when ridden against the SP5 it has to be that engine of the SP5!

    At the end of the day, from 851 to 888 they are all FANTASTIC machines, with their idiosyncrasies and also bits we like(white frames?) and those we don’t (showas? Gold frames?).

    I love them all, more than all the series, I don’t look up to an SPS or down to a Strada, just glad that someone appreciates the model to own one.

    Oh,and the SP5 is the best! Well mine anyway! ��

    The listing quotes the item is no longer for sale............."the garage probably realised it was in need to be returned to a "correct status"

    Still don,t get the SP5 personally but it is good we have a group with different feelings.

    Bought this new from Threecross motorcycles in Bournemouth.

    Although the purists wont agree- I haven't used the bike for many years , it has 4071 kms on the clock- and is safely locked away. Ill sell it when I need some more beer money.

    I never realised that there were so few SP5s in the UK.
