Summary:

It is a great bike, handles well and is classy

Faults:

Continuous Variable Transmission (or CVT) rollers needed replacing at 8500 miles. They had worn flat spots on them. Also the drive belt was replaced at the same time.

General Comments:

Great bike, very comfortable for touring and daily commutes. It handles quickly, hard to high side, and accelerates to 60 really fast.

There is belt knock from the drive train above 60 miles an hour. There are visible wear marks where the belts slaps the upper and lower drive train housing. This results in faster belt wear and belt glazing, which causes some slippage on occasion.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
