I'm not impressed;

1. Down right heavy Posted Image
2. Chains on the wrong side Posted Image
3. Fit and finish is questionable. The engine is down right ugly. Posted Image
4. Filter behind the number plate would be black inside 30 seconds Posted Image

Positives;

1. E-button Posted Image
2. Ohlins!! Posted Image

My eye stays on the 520...

Over 3 years of hype and they offer us an awful looking,problem plagued, unsatisfactory product. Japanese engineers make products that work and can be built at a resonable cost, American engineers seem to go for the coolest, most expensive to produce optins they can find! definatly not a bike in my near future.
