One of the all time great motorcycles
1 spark plug needed changing (after 8 years).
A nice all around bike, suited to around town or longer distance travel.
Plenty of sensible power in the mid range.
Very smooth - almost vibration free up to legal speed limits (and over a bit).
The fairing is very effective in keeping off cold wind and the worst of the rain. (I am 5ft 10ins)
After 8 years the bike is in as new condition.
MPG is around 60 when ridden at legal sensible speeds.
Very stable at high speed in wind.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
