Gorgeous and enjoyable to ride



General Comments:

Bike is a absolutely gorgeous, which is the main and only reason I bought it.

Since it had no faults, the only thing that is not good with this bike is insurance price and fuel consumption (6.5 l/100km easy driving, up to 11 l/100km if you push it to the limit) in relation to other bikes.

Since it is quite big and heavy, it is not suitable for city but on open roads, especially with long curves, it is really enjoyable to ride.

Acceleration is really good, and you have enormous torque at any rpm.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
