I've put approximately 5,000 miles on this bike.  I also owned a different one with high miles. The Rotax designed motor is fantastic, the motor pulls great at higher RPM, decent low end torque, and gets 52 miles to the gallon.  Great big front forks.  Great brakes.

 

That's about where I run out of compliments.  On the down side, 2.2 gallon tank mounted mid-bike.....I hate it.  Too small and the fuel inlet is right where my gear bag sits.  Rear air suspension is a complete mismatch for the beefy front forks.  Upgraded rear shock is almost a mandatory upgrade.  The bike sits really tall.  I'm a 32 inseam, and I struggle with the seat height in some dirt situations.  Also, no second rider on this bike.  There's no footpegs and I don't think the rear subframe is designed to hold a passenger.

 

It's an impressive bike, but there are a few major items that leave me wondering what they were thinking and what rider did they have in mind for this bike.
