I think I'd want to hear how it sounds starting first  :007:. Particularly in the cold  :015:.

My guess:  Probably just a bit quieter than our 1050's. Hopefully less thrashing, disguised with a slightly louder exhaust?
Maybe?

 :430: Should have made it clearer, I meant as in starting. Does it sound like it's going to die at any moment?  :015:.

i sat on the blighter.

its got the same seating position and feel as the old 955i. IMHO.
The clocks and ergonomics feel very comfortable. It looks like it has a scroll button too.
Its very narrow to sit on but the front end is bulbous (sp?)
The rear tyre profile looks the same as the 955i  narrower than the 1050. Well it looked it, to my untrained eye.

Colour schemes look nice too. 3: Blue, Graphite, Black.

The swing arm shaftie is big, as is the exhaust.

Jury is out with me. Like I said before elsewhere, I'll book a test ride.

Not particularly taken with the Explorer looks but the spec is interesting - I hear that the new Trophy will be similarly equipped, a much more likely replacement for my Tiger 1050.
