The short wheelbase and steep steering do their part to quicken the chassis' initial reflexes, but as you lean the CityX you become progressively aware of the large lump of whirling steel and aluminum directly under your larynx that's slowing roll response. In the city, where there's more cutting and thrusting than leaning and carving, the chassis works very well. The tall seat, high pegs and close-couple riding stance feel weird at first, but that wears off quickly. Suspension action is smooth and compliant, even over nasty pavement. The single front brake is more powerful than the Z750S's pair, and gratifyingly linear as well.
