I'm 6'1" and 16 stone (100kgs) and found the bikes seat remakably comfortable, the only downside was how high I found the pegs, but I soon got used to it, and I'm sure due to the bikes width it helps with ground clearance. The bike oozes quality and detail. The engine makes the bike move slighlty on tick over, which makes you really get a feeling for the huge pistons pulsing beneath you. It revs freely making a spine tingling sound, even on stock cans. Its not the lightest bike by a long shot, but it never becomes an issue, even around town, the brakes, torque and exellent balance see to that. The ride is very stable and reassuring, partly down to the weight I just mentioned, it has a light but planted feel on the move, which is great for windy conditions or passing lorry's. There is nothing bad about this bike, in fact, its a bargain at the prices I have seen them at (because people don't 'get it'). Its not a bike you tend to see about either, so with the value, you also recieve exclusivity. Go to a bike meet and see how many other MT-01's are there... This bike is a well kept secret, take a test ride and don't look back..... well.. exept for lifesavers of course!
