Thanks for all your replies.
How difficult is the Matt finish to look after?
Paullie Im looking to change around November and looking for a 17 or 18 plate sport with low miles. Ill be selling my 2015xcx with just under 20 k miles.
So the question is, why do you want to change?

I'm on my 3rd bike with Matt Black paint & have had no problems with any of the paint on any of them.
You just need to not touch with oily or greasy fingers and avoid using any polish or wax or silicon products on the paint.
I usually just wash the bike and the paint comes up good.
Recently splurged on some Muc-Off Matte Finish Detailer but have yet to use it.

Welcome aboard...

I came from a T800 and as others have already said, I am not alone in having done so.   I liked the T800 (roadie one, not XC) but never really 'clicked' with it, after 18k miles I decided enough was enough and treated myself to a TS.   The TS is heavier but considerably more powerful, and with a lot of extra torque it is a faster and much more relaxed ride.   The handling is not like a sportsbike but is decent enough (especially for an adventure-styled bike), the pure-road 17" wheels and tyres help here of course.   I prefer the bit of extra weight in exchange for the stability and solidity that it brings to the way the bike feels.   Others of course will prefer the slightly more nimble feeling of the T800.

Horses for courses - if you haven't already done so, get yourself a decent test ride and make your own mind up.
