Picked mine up in September from Taz, a U.S import. Binned the silly side reflectors and suffer the over-sized indicators but for £1500 less than UK book price, who cares! Been accross Europe on it and it handles very well, is comfy and I get 130 to an 18litre tank. Turns in a bit slowly compared to R1 but probably due to 190 section rear tyre. This bike is radically stylish compared to the old model, is a great do anything bike but sadly, like most bikes, is not perfect. It is an upright, comfy R1. Make no mistake, that engine is ballistic!! Out of 40 bikes owned so far, this is definatly in the top 3. Try one. Strengths: The engine, frame, chassis and yes, the finish. Even better than the big Hondas. Everyone loves the looks and the fat can does grow on you. Love the gold forks which hold excellent brakes. If you want a mad all-round and comfy bike then this is the one. Weaknesses: It should have a gold handle bar to match the forks. Poor fuel consumption at higher speeds. Needs a belly pan to hide lower pipe work, and yes, there is a poor fuelling problem especially if you shut off at speed and roll on again. Try it on a motorway and you'll see what I mean. Anyone know of a cure other than a Power Commander? It's not that bad though and once you're used to it you barely notice it until it catches you out again in the future!
