I went from a Yamaha XJ600S Diversion (yes a slow bike) to this, and maybe I just expected too much, but it's not upto the hype of litre bikes tbh. Sure it's quick, and from the line will put the wheel up easily in 1st or 2nd, but just not as mental as I expected. Bit high for a shorty like myself too (5'8", 13st), even on softest setting, dropped it twice due to not getting my feet down when stopped. Strengths: SOUND AWSOME!!!!, Fuel consumption is great for performance, looks - I don't think it's aged. Weaknesses: Height, Judgement (u come up on cars a lot quicker than it feels), strength (had to replace the battery after dropping bike).
