Should not be your first or even second bike!
When I bought it, it needed a battery and fork seals. Everything else was cosmetic.
If it wasn't so well known, it would be a sleeper as it's MUCH faster than it looks! You always have the feeling the bike is trying to rid itself of you, when you crack it open and let out that V-boost rage.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
