Weight and high-ish bars conspire against shorter riders. It makes slow 360° turns in car parks frustrating when arms struggle to achieve full-lock. But when you’re away the bike is surprisingly agile and oh so stable. Rear suspension is set to firm but not uncomfortably so. It allows you to feel what’s going on underneath you. The front end is softer so doesn’t give the same level of feel as the rear, but it copes well with the engine weight and under braking. Ride quality is plush and comfortable, but six-footers will need the taller screen that is available.
