Upright riding position relaxed and good for someone of my mature years. Comfy seat and the suspension helps maintain a smooth ride. Bike is good for long journeys - Length of ride limited by my own body! Never carried a pillion.
So far so good, but I have only had it for 2 months!
Single disc at back, twin discs at front, ABS. No problems stopping so far!
Ride is smooth and plenty of torque from the engine so frequent gear changes necessary. A heavy bike (around 250kg without rider) but easy to handle. Takes corners well for my style of riding, but I will never need knee pads on my m/c jeans!
66kw (88bhp) and 91Nm (67ft lb). Not a traffic light dragster, but more than enough for me. Cruises at 70mph with ease. More vibration from the engine than I was expecting, but that may change as it is run in.
Only had it 2 months but costs are as I expected. Hard to compare to other bikes as this is my first bike since the 70s! Average 58 mpg so far.
Very Heavy to move when pushing from Garage etc, but un noticeable when riding. Sticks to the road like Sh#t to a blanket, very nimble for its size, corners like its on rails. Very confident bike to ride.
Silky Smooth with no vibrations. just Purrs like a Pussy Cat. Not very powerful though. Need to think about overtaking, requires knocking down a few Cogs to get past a line of slower moving Vehicles. Which for a Torquey 1100cc is Bad.
Even at Motorway speeds, its only doing 2000rpm. Its very frugal for its engine size. (knocks spots off my Kawasaki 600 Ninja for fuel economy).
Solid. No loose rough parts, no sharp parts. Japanese but built like a German.
ABS. It stops!!!
