Overall Review

I've had some problems with the bike needed a new fly by wire throttle but over all I love this bike. I was going to buy the 821 monster but instead went for the standard 1200 and haven't regretted it. The dash is perfect and unlike my 1100 Evo intuitive and easy to change. I keep it in urban mode which suits me in London traffic...couldn't do that with the 821 loan bike have to have that in sports all the time! I love the way power comes on and the civilised rider experience. What I do however find interesting is the way the testers all moaned about the rear pegs. Yes it would be nice if they could be removed ( did that to the Evo ) but I've never found them a problem. What I have noticed is that they prevented major damage to the cans when the bike was knocked over when parked...I lost my Evo in a minor accident. What I would like to see is more attention paid by manufactorers to how their bikes react to minor spills it's not good enough. I lost my last bike because of this. Any way I love the new 1200 the best bike ive ever owned. dealer back by the way through InMoto Croydon wonderful.
