Overall Review

Great bike that at the time and still is the only bike that ticked all the boxes. I needed a bike which I could enjoy heading out with the lads on their sportsbikes for a few hours and could also load up and head off for a few days or longer. Looks good and turns heads when you pass by bikers and non bikers alike.

Strengths

Handling and performance like a sportsbike. Great pannier system thats easy to use. Comfortable enough for longer distances

Weaknesses

Jack of all trades, Master of non.

Overall Review

Having owned and loved my 2013 model, raked up the miles and loved every minute I traded in and went for the new model... I don't think I've ever bought 2 of anything... The 2015 went to France, Belgium, Germany& the length and breadth of the U.K. And I'm loving it. The new brakes are very strong, the panniers magnificent, but the biggest improvement has to be the improved suspension; still budget but make a change and you really can feel the difference. It really can tour, commute, scratch B roads, take the missus out, do the odd track day and look good doing it... I do change my bikes regularly but I really can't find better bike at this time so 2016 seems to be continuation of the love affair..

Strengths

New pannier system, revised suspension, new brakes, traction control. Blinding motor, great handling, fantastic alrounder.

Weaknesses

Can't actually tell any difference in protection with different screen settings... It just gets louder (1.8M rider)
