I've been trying to rack up some miles on the bike and although she's in her running in period, I can tell how awesome this bike is going to be. First 200 miles was kept around the 4k revs (which equates to 68 mph) with bursts up to 5/5500 rpm. Now that I'm into the second phase of running in, I'm starting to stretch her legs and increasing the bursts up to 6500 rpm with some crusing @ 5/5500 rpm. We're now into having to be careful where that is done as triple digits are possible. To say the least, I am so glad I bought this bike and it is living up to every expectation I hoped for. The handling is superb, brakes are fantastic, ergos great (adjustable footrests/handlebars/seat height) and even tho' the engine is tight, economy after the first full tankfull was 50 mpg (Imperial gallon) and I got 225 miles before the low fuel warning came on. There's three litres of petrol left at that point, so I could have easily got 250 miles before refueling.
Love it love it love it !!!
Good luck exploring the infinite abyss
