Worth the money


MPG is not as good as I thought it would be.

Owner's manual states 6.2 gallons, but even after filling up with the low on gas light on, the max I ever put in was just under 5 gallons.

General Comments:

Handles great, even in the Seattle rain; be careful as it can still hydroplane.

Very comfortable ride

Excellent lighting for night riding.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
