Summary:

Perfect bike for a rider who enjoys the ride itself

General Comments:

Best of everything, cooks like hell when you throttle it up, yet comfortable enough to ride for distance.

My only complaint is the gearbox isn't as smooth as it could be, but such a minor issue.

Summary:

Almost perfect sport bike for a longer trip

Faults:

Absolutely nothing has gone wrong with the bike, at all.

General Comments:

Incredibly fast yet comfortable sport bike. Love this machine!

Not the fastest, but 90+ horsepower is an incredible thrill.

Handling is more by lean than by hanging off it, so that makes for a more enjoyable ride for me. The upright riding style is great, although the stock seat should be replaced before any long trip.

The 14,000 redline is great. The bike likes to rev up to the power band.

Only complaints are the hard seat and the throttle is too sensitive.

Love the passenger handles, which double as gear attachments.

Has never needed anything but maintenance. Build quality seems incredible.
