REVIEW

★★★★☆
Handling, performance, sound, electronics package
× Heavy, on the hot side

It's a great bike, which handles and performs like a racing bike, yet it's an adventure bike. It theoretically shouldn't, but it DOES.

Everything is electronically controlled to riding perfection, the power is amazing and the V-twin sounds like a v8 when opened up. It's the S version, though it feels so right when it hits the dirt, so imagine what the R version feels like when properly set up

Weight wise it feels like my old BMW GS800 but with better handling. The screen is large, legible and can provide navigation via an app on your phone.

It runs warm, which is great in cooler months, but might feel cooked in the summer. The battery likes to be fully charged, if not constantly in use, or it'll throw a few false codes. Other than that I haven't had any failures.
