Around town, the softly sprung suspension handles the task of absorbing pavement irregularities with aplomb. Moving out to the twisties, however, displays the suspension's limitations. On smooth pavement, the ride, while boingy, remains confidence inspiring until the pace gets ratcheted up into the aggressive end of the scale. In bumpier environs, the front end (in particular) gets upset easily. We attribute this to the fact that the ZR rides high in its suspension travel, and the minimal rebound damping allows the fork to spring back, topping out the suspension. Again, this only becomes noticeable in more spirited riding situations. At faster paces, the soft initial application of the front brakes may also cause some concern in newer riders who are not confident enough to give the firm pull required to get maximum power out of the binders. Perhaps bleeding the system would firm up the feel.
