Summary:

I like this bike, and look forward to the day I am able to undertake an extended journey with it

Faults:

The fuel tank float ceased to indicate the fuel level. The dealer attempted to repair it, but unfortunately was not able to. This occurred at approximately 82 000km.

General Comments:

I find this to be an extremely comfortable bike to ride.

The braking leaves much to be desired.

The engine sounds smooth and the sound from the exhausts is a healthy roar.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
