Very adequate for a commuter / sport tourer bike


No problems; has been very reliable.

General Comments:

I am more than satisfied with this motorbike, and would thoroughly recommend it as a reliable, reasonably comfortable, good performer.

It's a good looking bike.

Its handling is good for a big bike, and even in wet weather, it has proven to stick to the road with its Metzler tyres.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
