Excellent video and thank you for posting. I thought it was an exceedingly informative review in how it spoke to the aspects of the bikes character, or in some ways, lack of same. So, it sounds like it'll be kinda dull as far as top-end rush goes. I am perfectly OK with that, since mine will be used for everyday use, commuting and getting into the backwoods rough-pavement twisties and fire roads on weekends. In other words, normal V-Strom stuff. And that's how V-Strom's are supposed to behave as far as I'm concerned.
So I'm quite happy to have confirmation that what I call the "lovingly predictable" qualities will carry forward, with updated technology and lots more low-end "grunt". Looking forward to picking up my Crimson Pigeon in roughly a month or month and a half...
