Hi all, I've been looking to update my Wee Strom for some time now and (as well as many other bikes) was always drawn back to the bike I already own albeit a later model. I've found that my bike ticks all the boxes for what I want, however I've often wondered what the 1000cc V-Strom would be like to own, especially now as there's a few second hand ones getting around for around the 9-10k mark. A friend of mine recently threw a spanner into the works by suggesting I consider a Cagiva Navigator, which apparently runs all Suzuki gear but is housed in a very tidy and well respected Italian frame, with the usual Italian goodies like better brakes, suspension etc,. Now I have started looking at the Cagivas, they seem to represent even better value that the V-Strom and I really like the styling etc as well. (+ I feel I'm buying something a bit different than just my current bike's big brother) Thing is....I read very recently (in this month's M/C trader) a rather negative article about the TL1000S (which is the engine used in the Navigator). The article states that the TL has numerous faults (mainly in the handling dept)BUT what was of concern to me was that the engine apparently had 2 recalls and was temperamental if it hadn't been serviced exactly to schedule. What I'm asking (in an around about way) is "How reliable is the TL engine and what should I be looking for with this model of bike ? Is there any owners of Navigators out there ?
