Bought new 03. 2005 had failed clutch, throttle jamming on, brake failure, overheating. Refused to ride it after 2nd brake failure. Negotiated replacement with cash, adjustment, failed fuel pump, stranded again. Bought a 4 year old valadero and sold the beemer 'nuff said, good when it runs though ...never buy out of warranty you have been warned! Strengths: Really good all rounder. Weaknesses: Terrible reliability problems, you have been warned!
