Summary:

Tons of fun, reasonable prices with big bike looks

Faults:

Nothing so far...

General Comments:

Great fuel economy, brisk acceleration, excellent handling.

A bit small feeling for me, as I'm 6'0".

Cheap to insure, looks like a twin cylinder larger bike.

Wonderful/easy to ride in town at slow speeds.

Wish you had a choice of colors. This bike is basically unchanged since its introduction in 1999 (approx).

Understand you can get years of trouble free fun out of these machines.

Concerns:

The seat is uncomfortable after approximately two hours, and valves need to be checked every 3K miles after the initial service. Runs up the cost of routine maintenance.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
