Had a good look over the demo machine here in Christchurch New Zealand when it arrived at the dealers on Tuesday. Initial impressions are that it feels just like a 650 to sit on, very comfortable riding position and I was surprised that it felt as low as the 650 and as light. Fit and finish looked standard Suzuki, good but not Euro good. Engine sounded very smooth and mechanically very quiet, especially compared to my riding mates KTM 1190 which sounds angry at idle by comparison :mrgreen:
We were in the middle of a nasty storm on Wednesday so no chance of a ride but will hopefully get a ride on the weekend.
Stock is supposed to be in end of this month, early April.
BTW, I don't really like the red. Would like to see the Khaki
