I am interested in buying one  , hopefully next year as long as WW3 doesn't break out , looks and sounds great imo , plenty of power , took me 15 mins to get used to the 150mm front tyre , corners great , surprisingly nimble , front brakes are very good , comfortable enough for me , even the forward controls were fine , you get a bit of heat off the rear cylinder at a stop , but if you put your right foot on the foot peg that disappears , I didn't find the rear suspension harsh , and that was on the b roads of N Somerset , even the price is ok , ideal bike for cruising to the seaside on .

Am I allowed top be honest? I mean no offence. My best mate has one of these. Butt ugly, too small, no hope of a pillion being happy. I just don't get it or the Indian equivalent. Is the entire bike supposed to be centered around the muffler? And it looks like someone bought a headlight from Midas and bolted it on in a rush.  :005: But, horses for courses....

PS. I heard one of our other mates say that Zac's (the guy who owns one) bike looks like a beefed up Honda Grom. The scale of it is the issue, I think.

Of course you can have an opinion , we don't all have to agree , looks are subjective , as for size , if your more than 6 foot and weigh more than 18 stone you will look like your on a grom , as for pillion my wife is not interested in motorbikes .
