Great in depth review, concur rear suspension and low speed jerky engine. Only time will tell for longevity, fingers crossed.
Side panels and crash bars, great point, you can see dealers charging extra labour to service for crash bar removal. I have SW-Motech crash bars, side panels come of fine. It would be a major oversight of a vendor to design their bars to do this, I suspect no-one worth their salt has.
Handlebar flex...is that a big deal? The handlebar wall thickness may be a contributing factor in overall weight reduction and a little flex provides a degree of extra comfort.
