Bad points: Back brake is crappenshite. Build quality is poor, fairing panels move apart and hard to get back in place. Lots of corrosion in the nooks and crannies, it's only been out in the bad weather a few times and then it was washed down. Good job it's not my only bike or I would get rid of it for this reason; I haven't got the time to meticulously wash a bike every time I use it. I seem to burn my boot heel onto the exhaust when I've got my toes on the footpegs. Good points. The engine and the handling are superb. Whether it's fast sweepers or bumby B roads, it's a blast. Went to Switzerland on it in June, covered 2500 miles in 6 days and felt fine on it, from long stretches on the peage to the hairpins on the mountain passes, the bike coped beautifully. Body felt fine but I got a sore ass, but I get that on every bike if I do more than a couple of hundred miles a day. For the performance and the price paid, it would be hard to beat.
