2001 ie model showing 18.5k owned for 2 weeks. Fuel economy 50-60mpg = 200/270 miles range, light, torquey, sustainable top speed probably 90,comfortable up to 80, practical (mine has Givi screen and racks). Fun to ride locally, good mirrors and great riding stance but after a 12 hour 350 mile day out I know why trials riders stand up a lot! Quality seems good, great round the lanes and A roads, not really a motorway bike. Excellent for filtering and quite stable. Corners reasonably well. Lots of sensible ideas BMW could copy. Strengths: Good all rounder,economy & range, very practical & versatile, not too narrowly focussed. Weaknesses: Saddle comfort - lack of ! - its only really bad fault.
