I would recommend it
My one concern is that the gas tank is too small (14L) for a 1500 cc engine.
I had the 1400 Intruder, a cruiser, which was quicker and more responsive, but not comfortable for longer trips, and when riding 2-up, I ended up on the gas tank.
The 1500 touring is much more comfortable, and seems to get better gas mileage. As an experiment, I ran it dry and got 275 km (170 miles) to the tank.
Handles well and very responsive to the throttle.
Passengers are more comfortable, but did comment that the foot pegs were not in the optimum position.
I have received many compliments on its looks.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
