As it once was with the Shaq Attaq, nobody told the new-generation Concours it's too big to pick and roll right past goggle-eyed disbelievers. Steering's a bit heavy, and track-derived trail-braking makes it a whole lot heavier. Otherwise, the only distraction is trying to figure if we have time for another lap of that national forest before lunch. Although it generates slightly less peak output than the ZX-14 from whence it came, the 1352cc four produces power with the same sort of seamless abundance as a Los Angeles-class submarine using various clever technologies. And no nasty spent fuel rods to dispose of.
