It’s hard to believe that the nature of the motorcycle engine VTR1000F Fire Storm resembles a diesel engine. He steadily and dynamically accelerates the red motorcycle from its place and begins to give up only when the tachometer needle shamelessly quickly flies through the mark of 7000 rpm. I understand that for the right ride on this pro-Italian bike you need courage and patience, and only they will help subjugate this “liter” that is unconventional in design, but balanced in many respects. The clutch works great. Driving it with two fingers, I easily maneuver between cars and remember how difficult it was to do the same on the Italian Aprilia RSV Mille and Falco superbikes with their pneumatic amplifiers. An impressive sound pours out of both mufflers located on opposite sides of the motorcycle, which is why a group of tourists from a roadside cafe somehow look cautiously in my direction. A powerful roar at the start, and in front of a winding country road, on it I will have to merge with the device and get used to its somewhat straightforward behavior. The geometry of the chassis definitely affects the behavior of the motorcycle. To say about Fire Storm - you do not have time to blink an eye as the motorcycle is in a bend, I can not. But when passing through slow corners (in first and second gears), because of the high torque, a feeling of slight skidding constantly arises. It is necessary to “hold” the motorcycle with the body, otherwise it will go through a turn along a much larger radius than originally planned. Although this also depends on the habit and on the speed of movement. The higher the speed, the less distinctly such a feature of management. If it was possible to adapt to this character of the motorcycle, the driver feels the pleasure that is hardly available to the owner of the usual road “liter”. Even working braking is not able to unbalance the machine. Good ground clearance, smooth operation of the suspensions and the predicted engine give minutes of happiness.

It is amazing how well the front 41-mm fork and the rear shock absorber harmonize with each other, which at the very beginning of the trip I adjusted slightly for my relatively light weight. By two divisions, he loosened the preload of the springs in the front fork and the rear shock absorber. The procedure took a little time and improved handling. Hooray, I'm back in the corner. It is extraordinarily simple and exciting. I stop for a moment, I want to make sure everything is in order, and I check the tires. Temperature and pressure are normal. All clear! Without delay, until the tires are cool, I turn on the gear and enjoy the ride again. Meanwhile, the inclined position is becoming more and more fascinating. But the Dunlop Sportmax tires are flawless. I understand the dangerous euphoria.

In full confidence, I go into a sharp left turn, when suddenly a toned “six” flies out to meet and sweeps just a few centimeters from the elbow. Automatically dump gas, straighten the motorcycle, hit the brakes and again lean in the direction of rotation. Harmony, a second ago consisting of a body, consciousness and soul, is temporarily broken. A heart is breaking from the chest. Consciousness projects a summary of incidents in the “Road Patrol” with my participation before my eyes, and the soul, ready to go to the next world, tries to convince itself that the dangerous situation is behind and you can already relax. It is simply amazing that at this stage the VTR1000F did not have any difficulty in accurately fulfilling the orders of the driver, and the motor seems to wonder why it was necessary to slow down at all.

Working at half-power, the engine calmly rumbles, as if he wants to ask: "Well, old man, put it in his pants?"
