First gear is way too high. Feels more like a second gear. Impossible to ride slowly without riding the clutch. Poorly thought out by Honda.
Jerky throttle at low RPM. It is impossible to ride along at 15-20 MPH without having the engine jerk back and forth (slapping the chain) because the throttle is goofy.
I'm American, 6'2, 235 lbs with a size 14 (48) boot. the foot pegs, shifter and rear peddles were made for little people; most likely designed by a 4 ft, 85 lb. Japanese engineer. Why would Honda build a big bike like this and make the peddles for midgets?
