Took it for a brief ride to the bank, & to the gas station - only 12 miles round trip. Was 40° and I had no gloves & I wore the half-helmet. My hands were not working when I got back .... BRRR! But man this thing is just as comfortable going down our potholed roads as sitting on the couch. Suspension is AWESOME! Seat is comfy & that little backrest is the best invention ever! As far as those twin 4" + pistons go, you wouldn't know it weighs 800+ lbs. You don't have to stay in any gear for more than a second. It's just as happy short-shifting as it is redlining. There's over 100 ft.lbs. of torque at the rear wheel from about 1,800 rpm all the way to redline.
I romped on it leaving the house so my neighbors could hear it, and I was up to 80 in about 3 seconds - she hauls nicely! The handling was a bit goofy due to the worn out rear. It's lost it's formerly round profile & become flat in the middle. The seller stated it was only 700 miles young .... but I think somebody did a few heaters with it. Not like it's hard to do with 125 ft.lbs. at the wheel.
Just figures we go from 80° days down to a freeze warning the minute it got here.
