Ok I have been waiting to ride one of these for a while now. The first two that came into the shop went to the other mechanics and sales staff. Well I have just come back from riding the new demo bike. I LIKE IT :grin: Ok nitty gritty, It is quite high in the saddle (845mm) so shorter people need not apply. Very compact, when you sit on it you are looking over the front wheel. Has a really nice exhaust note for a standard system very light throttle and is very responsive. Once rolling you feel as though you are sitting quite high up.which you are pretty much on top of the bike. bars give you great leverage and the bike turns in sweetly, brakes are fantastic even with zero km on the bike, as they should be as taken from S4R monster and 1098. Lots of torque in the 1100. Yet still revs nice and fast. Power on monos in second gear are dead easy, just twitch the throttle and up it comes, yet feels different to other bikes. Because you sit in the middle above the rear cylinder it feels as though the whole bike is coming up underneath you. Rather than pivoting off the rear wheel. Mirrors in the standard position work well, good views all around, but, not good for lane filtering, makes the bike very very wide. I have mentioned I LIKE IT> Would I buy one, probably not. The fuel range goes against what I need from a bike. The tank is only 12.5 l big and some of the rides I do I need more than that. That being said I really like this bike, it screams hooligan like almost nothing else I have ridden. Scumbag out.
