This bike, for its size, has very good performance, outperforming bikes twice its size. It will outrun a Harley 96 cubic inch in a top gear roll-on from 50 mph. I have had it to a top speed of 120 mph indicated, 112 mph verified by GPS. This thing hauls. It is faster than my previously owned 1400 Intruder. In fact, it has a higher top gear roll-on top speed after 200 yards than any bike I have ever owned.
I get very good gas mileage, averaging 55 mpg, when driven at legal speeds.
It is fairly comfortable for rides not exceeding the capacity of the fuel tank.
Great around town, and OK on the highway, high frequency vibration being my only complaint comfort wise.
I am 6'2", 220 lbs, and I am comfortable for 3-4 hours in the saddle at a time.
I would have to rate it as one of the best values ever in motorcycling.
