There's no denying there's a lot of hate for the Crossrunner - too ugly, heavy, expensive, cramped etc. Well, I like the 'jetski' styling, but the covered bars and gaping dash chasm were a lost design opportunity. It hides its weight well on the road, and is very stable at all speeds. The RRP is pricey and certain essential extras are stupidly expensive, but just drive a good deal, or buy used with the bits already included. The official luggage system is fantastic, it's great for touring, but the Crossrunner can give you a big smile even on just short runs and the twisty stuff. I find it economical, averaging 50+mpg, and the engine is one of the all-time greats, despite being pricey to maintain. As always, Honda got the spec and pricing wrong, but at the right price and with the right kit added this is an absolutely superb choice for real-world bikers.
