Thumbs up Maiden Voyage Review

Surpassed expectations.

Riding position - Upright like I am used to and comfortable with.

Seat - Super comfy. These two combined mean you could ride it all day.

Motor - Ultra Smooth with a real nice spread of power. Plenty of pick up and boogie in any gear. But it has that "6th" gear that I have craved for so long.
Rubber Dampeners mean hardly any vibration from motor through body and bars.

Looks - Sweet. Gone is the face that only a mother could love like previous generations.

It is light, nimble with plenty of usable practical power.
Perfect for long commutes and threading gridlock.

Features - ABS, nuff said

Dual Throttle Valves - Smoother power delivery so not punchy or jerky.

Economical Riding Indicator - Shows on the LCD display when you are riding "economically" therefore using less fuel. It's a nice touch.

Long Travel Suspension - Adds to the smooth handling.

Very Happy with my decision

You're obviously pleased, but you didn't say anything about the flux capacitor or the cloaking device. Oh wait, those are only on California bikes.
