Quality, reliability and equipment levels are very good. A bit pricey but I don't mind paying for reliability. The engine is torquey but very rough, with vibration usually restricting revs to below 5000. As a tourer this bike could go all day every day if it wasn't for the engine vibration. I get sore hands after about an hour, which severly limits its practicality. Range is about 250 - 300 km. The bike is extremely stable in all situations, is very well balanced, and is very easy to ride slowly. It is big but manages twisty roads quite well. Brakes are good but don't have much feel. Panniers are large, easy to use and mostly waterproof. Overall a very good bike for what it's intended to do, but is let down by the engine vibration.
