I have had a Transalp 600, an Africa Twin 750, A super Ténéré 750, 2 Yamaha TDM 850's, a TDM 900, a Super Ténéré 1200. And I must say, as a twin addict, this is far the smoothest bicilindre I have ever had. I wonder how they made this thing : without any enoying vibrations, it delivers the sensations of good thumps and punchy power. I prefer the beats of a twin over the flat character of a 4 or even a tri. On the other hand, every bicilinder suffers less or more those vibrations. Untill now, this is the first best of both worlds to my opinion. Hope the engine is a bit durable, but until know it is amazing to me !
