Quick review, ridden from Church St to Port Melbourne and back. Return trip two up. Firstly, riding position, quite upright and tall so you can see lots around you. Good wide bars and mirrors with integrated indicators are useful. Good instrumentation. Motor. is very quiet and I was expecting more out of it. I have riddent he 1000 motor and it feels punchier. I think it is the combination of too tall gearing and the newness of the bike(200km) Brakes are good but not awe inspiring. The bike rolls very easily once it is going but can take a bit of work with the gearing. If it was mine that would be changed very quickly along with a set of pipes. I do not like the wet clutch, it is hard to get a feel for what it is doing. I prefer the feel of my dry clutch (yes even with its noise) to the feel of the wet one on the MTS. I am now wanting to ride the new Hypermotard when it appears later this year. Lighter and with a little more power and a dry clutch. As long as it is not geared for moon shots it should be very entertaining. Would I buy one, no I can say I would not.
