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.
