Summary:

Stands out from the crowd, always a head turner

Faults:

Nothing major yet.

The tank is plastic; which is a pain because it's hard to find a small tank bag that isn't magnetic.

The foot pegs are angled slightly, which is hard to get used to; constantly shuffling my feet.

I find it's hard to start compared to my previous 4 strokes after 24 hours of inactivity; also needs a good blasting out once a week (freeway at 150km/h does it).

Other than that, I love it;

General Comments:

Love it; See above for general comments;

I would like to know what range you get out of your bike? Does it handle well on long rides and is the wow factor high? Thank you.
