Summary:

Awesome

Faults:

Nothing has gone wrong with this bike.

General Comments:

Love the styling. Heaps of chrome and you don't feel out of place riding with the big boys. Amazed at how many people think it's a Harley.

Custom pipes give it a real throaty roar and turns heads wherever you go. Love it.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

I'd still buy it if I had it to do over

Faults:

Electric fuel pump had to be replaced at 1500 miles.

The seat is a killer after 45 minutes or so of riding. I have to pull over & get off for a spell. My G/f says the same about the passenger seat. Thinking of jell seats.

General Comments:

Other than those things, I love the bike. It has ample power & I'll run right with the big Harley's or any other bike & feel proud.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Don't Know
