Summary:

Reliable

Faults:

Brake light needed work. Nothing major.

General Comments:

A great bike in all. Very happy I waited a long time to get the big Zephyr, and I'm glad I picked one up.

Was told they have a soft clutch, but I think I was told lies. I've since being told the Zephyr gives very little trouble, and the clutch in mine is perfect.

When I drop the throttle she moves. Great bike to accelerate. Will sit nice at 100mph all day long.

Riding position is comfy. Great for long distance.

Great fun bike handles very well.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
