An outstanding all rounder
The CDI Pickup for the electronic ignition system. Apparently this is a relatively common problem.
The on board clock wears the battery down if stood for extended periods (more than 2 - 3 weeks).
Overall I'm very impressed, it's not the lightest, fastest or best handling bike I've ridden, but has that unique combination of being good enough in each department to make it a great bike that you can live with.
It is certainly one of the most comfortable bikes, I've owned at just over 6'3". I find it easy to ride and handle, and don't get cramp like I do on many other sports tourers.
The seat height is not so good if you like your saddle a bit closer to the ground.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
