My advice; get some hours on that thing before passing judgement. Like a good wine they get better with age ;-)

Just ride her and enjoy mate, I got my 14 a few month ago and have put about 8hrs on it up to now and it's just starting to feel right. Suspension takes a while to bed in so don't be disheartened after the first few rides.

Not sure I follow your questions, but a new thread may be your best bet in getting an answer to them.

Back to the '15... Like others have said, go ride it and put a few hours on it before getting too crazy with trying to get it perfect. I struggled quite a bit with my '14, trying to get the forks to work like my well-worn '11 did. I was all over the place with settings and finally, after about 7 or 8 hours, it started to settle in nicely. There are a couple good threads about suspension settings for the '14. I don't have the direct links handy, but should be easy enough to find. Have fun. It is a great bike.

bike looks sick.. wish they sold black wheels on the 14.. definitely like the 15 plastics, might have to order some.. Can you take some close up shots of the motor mounts? i am curious how much they changed.
