I'm still sad they don't make this model any more! And more sad I sold mine!
In the short time that I had the bike, absolutely nothing went wrong. 2500 miles, I followed the owners manual religiously. Good bike.
The power felt good for an 800. I loved how responsive the bike was.
Because the bike wasn't huge, it was easy to get moving and also to stop. Braking was never an issue.
Weight felt right. I was never scared about tipping the bike as it wasn't too heavy.
Handled very well.
Seat was small, especially with a rider. I wouldn't do any touring with it, but the commute was joyful.
It got a lot of looks around town!
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
