This is a great bike for those who need one bike for all year round commuting, touring and weekend rides. It is a smooth bike, easy to handle (though heavy), but during the snow and frosts I got caught a few days riding home in a few mm of snow and I had no surprises. Good low down power and MPG (around 50 for all riding) and has reasonable look. Mine came as a black GT version with full fairing and full luggage and new was £1000 less than the price quoted on MSN. Traded in my ST Sprint for this bike and not missing the Sprint (though a great bike) because of the better luggage capacity and now £1000's less than the new Sprint tourer. No vibes from mirrors! Many Deuville riders progress to these.
