Ok, I registered and that was a good read. Very interesting.
I test rode one last year, and believe it or not I just couldnt' get into the looks. I'm one of the few that actually really likes the way the Strom looks. The ride was fun though, it felt very fast and nimble, very good brakes, and seem to turn well but I didn't really thrash it.
In the end, I agree with WTY, it's quite small when you're on it. And the price tag was over $11k on the one I demo'ed, I think it was an ABS. Too much money IMO. But a nice bike overall. I'd have to absolutely LOVE it though to consider spending that much $$$.
