They are OK so long as you never go out in, or get caught in the rain. The voltage regulator is cunningly placed just in front of the rear wheel so it gets sprayed with water. The electrical connectors on the regulator are apparently made of steel, not copper, so they corrode and fall to bits, taking the wiring loom and regulator with them. Whoever heard of making electrical connectors from steel?. At about 18 months old and 4000 miles you will need a new wiring loom and regulator. Fortunately the first time this happens you will of course break down but at least it will be covered by the manufacturer's warranty. All you have to do is cancel the reason you went out on the bike that day, arrange for the bike to be taken to a dealer, get yourself home and wait for it to be fixed. Then return to the dealer to collect the bike. The second time it happens, hopefully it will belong to someone else, because of course as soon as you broke down the first time, you got rid of the stupid thing.
This also applies to the other 'same design' bikes - ER6n and Versys.

Are we there yet? No, not yet!
Seriously though, don't wish a breakdown on me, just so you can say I told you so. I have it almost a year now and it has done everything I needed it to do. It is kept outdoors in all weathers and has never failed me.

I beg to differ with jamie arnot as mine went yesterday, taking the regulator and about 3 inches of loom with it leaving me stranded just as the first post describes.
Just over a year old and only just over 4000 miles.
Reckon the replacement will be getting the silicon treatment....

The spokesman for the municipal government team, said in a press conference that the use of radars in the so-called zone 30 is not intended to "hunt down anyone," but "simply to drive with moderation."
