Such a shame I sold it... Wish I hadn't



General Comments:

I haven't regretted something more in my life than selling this bike... If only I could turn back time...

Big, heavy bike, but easier to ride than the Monster 620i I had before.

Good brakes (considering the size of the bike). They saved me once (along with the suspension). Two on the bike, and some 5-series decides to u-turn. Bike just stops! Amazed.

Spins the wheel anywhere and everywhere (especially in Greece!).

Added an Akrapovic system. Lots less weight, nice sound, a little more power (says 15 hp). Weight loss most noticeable.

Tried flatter handlebars. Nice look, standard are much more comfortable though.

Would buy again (thinking about it too!)

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
