kicks arse,headturner poky and light,strong ,dropped it twice, 20 metre slide no damage ( acerbis hand guards a must)i still dont understand which bits of the bike are sliding down the road!! 2000 miles so far, starts on the button. sits in the rain and cold no worries, tyres suck wearing them out rapid so i can put on some with some grip. best thing about this bike is its a real bike, no b/s. good mpg i think!? seat was uncomfortable for an hour now is all good. did i say the tyres are shit? cant locate the panniers that allegedly exist, dont feel the need to upgrade or trick out this bike, unlike all my others, which is good, only things i have put on are acerbis handguards and r&g fork and swingarm protectors(after drops) change the tyres before you take it home, change the oil.
