Reliable and dead fun to scoot around on
I'm 6' and 200+ lbs, so contrary to popular belief this is not a 'girlie' bike. It has plenty to spare to pull my fat you know what around.
Plenty of torque (although I'm looking to upgrade with a new exhaust, air filter and jets) in stock form and gas mileage is great (300+kms per tank before reserve).
Handles well, not as noisy as you would think, the rubber engine mounts really make a difference in vibration.
Forget the 1200 - do a cheap upgrade as noted about, and you'll have a little road warrior that will surprise a lot of people.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
