hi all
done a pic of bike , click to make bigger .
first ride today ,quick spin to work , heavy traffic and started raining (WELL IT WOULD ) the bike was so clean . does not steer like a gs ,felt strange at first , however once over 20mph it was fine . coming home it was a damp road ,put the mode of sports on , 20 mile hack home and the bike was fantastic , more stable at higher speeds , it has a damper ,not like the gs . engine the same basically maybe less revs at 80 mph . put it through the paces as i would on the hp2 sport or ducati ,and it did not upset the bike at all . brakes are top quality ,i thought they would be ,it has esa and asc . great to ride a light roadster , my overall opinion of the bike is that it is a very under rated machine and has a lot of + things going for it . i will be happy to use on the winter roads wet or dry and has enough power to keep you very happy. good choice .i will need some tyres soon and will put some sport touring on for the winter.:)

Thant's a great color.
I agree with you about this bike being underrated, just look around the internet for reviews or aftermarket stuff.

enjoy it.
