I liked this machine overall, and believe the problems it had were an isolated case
Both front fork seals had to be replaced because they were leaking fluid (under warranty) within the first week of ownership.
Front seal for the cooling fan developed a small leak at about 8K miles.
Internal leak in the engine coolant jacket (liquid cooled engine) allowed coolant to saturate the alternator/stator assembly, subsequently causing weak ignition spark where the motor wouldn't run at all.
Repair of this was cost prohibitive, both in labor and parts (the cost of repair was as much as I paid for the motorcycle). It stopped running at 13K miles on it.
This was my first motorcycle, so I didn't have anything to compare it with. This machine ran good up until it started running weak intermittently at about 10K. It died at about 13K miles.
I loved the "putt-putt" sound of the V-twin. Many people said it sounded like a mini-Harley. It was very powerful for its size.
The shaft drive allowed a smooth and quiet ride.
I would find that I had to stop and stretch my legs frequently, because the seat would make my tailbone ache.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
