Summary:

Great Ride - Great Price

Faults:

Only issue so far related to the iPod connector.. music kept cutting in and out. Dealer replaced with a new adapter, and now works fine.

General Comments:

Great ride, very comfortable on the highway, able to hit cruise control and coast along. For its size, it handles with ease and accelerates with power.

Lots of room for luggage and accessories.

With the foot vent openings, your legs are kept cool as you cruise along.

However in stop and go traffic, the engine permeates heat, making the ride a little uncomfortable.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
