No issues in the first 500 miles.

General Comments:

Amazingly nice package of performance and handling. Comfortable riding position.

Even a first time rider can handle it, and grow into it. Forgiving, but you must treat it with respect. Easy to forget you've got 900cc under your seat.

Summary:

My two wheeled option of choice

Faults:

Absolutely nothing has gone wrong with this motorcycle.

This motorcycle has performed flawlessly since I bought it used.

Others have reported a foul stink from the exhaust, but mine has never done this. Non factory modifications possibly are the cause of their smelly emission.

This bike has a catalytic converter and relatively quiet exhaust system. It really sounds powerful around 3000 to 5000 rpm and has a nice burble to it.

General Comments:

Quick acceleration at virtually any point in the engine revs.

I have never had a bike that leads you into a corner like this one.

No "tupperware" to tear up if you go down!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

The reason yours doesn't stink is because of the cat. It's the ones without cats that make you smell like gas fumes, but that's really no big deal, if you don't like the fumes than get some slip ons with down turned tips.
