Gosh, thanks to everyone for the very helpful replies, I am sorry I have not replied as quickly as I should. I did take one for a 50 mile test ride, and liked it a lot (apart from screen wind noise), but overall it is a very comfortable ride. I did find though that the riding style (being more upright) whilst very comfortable felt a bit "remote" and less envolving for me, but that is purely a personal observation and does not detract from the bike overall. It was in my short list, but I later took a Fazer8 out for a spin and absolutely loved it.
So unfortunately I will be leaving this very good forum to join the Fazer8 group, but I do thank you for taking the time to reply and hope that others will find this post helpful in the future.
Best wishes to you all
