Love this bike. Kind of a retro style with a modern interpretation.

My buddy in Texas sat on one at a dealership...He really liked it. I didn't ask him which color because he's color blind and would just tell me what shade of grey he saw.

I find this bike very appealing among the sea of retro styled bikes out there.

Not a huge fan of I-4 bikes though, but this one is large enough where displacement compensates for lack of low RPM grunt usually found in I-4 engines.

If I were looking for a modern retro bike today I would consider these in order of least likely to buy.

Honda CB1100
Yamaha XSR 900
Yamaha XSR 700
Kawasaki Z900RS
BMW R-nine-T lineup
Ducati Scrambler lineup
Moto Guzzi V7 lineup
Triumph Bonneville/Scrambler/Thruxton

The European bikes were out of my league when I first started riding which is probably why they are more likely purchases. It is hard for me to have a bike without bags to carry my essentials. I already have the Moto Guzzi Cafe Classic that barely gets ridden so that would be the same if I owned any in the list.

Saw one last weekend at a local bike show. It’s good looking bike bare bike. They had it by a restored 1973 Z1. I would buy it if I could👍

I got to test ride one today from my local dealer. Very smooth with lots of power and torque it is a beast. Very nice bike and was fun to ride but I will keep my versys.
