I'm very impressed with every aspect of this bike.
For starters – fit and finish, quality for a first year bike is really high. You can tell engineering looked for cost savings but rugged build.
Handling – it really is a good street bike - handles much better than I expected given its bias towards offroad suspension.
Sound –*had a Varadero before it with a big twin growl, this sounds equally awesome.
Fuel Economy – my bike isn't even fully broken in and i get 4-5.1 l/100 kilometres or over 55-65 mpg.
Being different – there are lots of KLRs, BMW adventures, etc. This one is just a bit different from all of them
It's a Honda –*it should ride, and ride, and ride and require routine maintenance and be a long-lasting bike.
