I owned a gen1 for 20 months and covered 28,000 miles, loved it, but with 40,000 miles on clock, opted for a great pre-vat and 2% deal. After 9 months and 8,000 miles later, my views are this is a better bike.
More midrange and top end, improved handling and sharper brakes. This is the only bike i want. just love it!
