      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good for short commutes.

      Had one for a couple of weeks while my triumph trophy was in for service. It was in orange so you couldnt miss seeing it.
      I found it to be small as i ride a much bigger bike, it is very nippy then i realised it has a 955i engine in it. A 3 cylinder so it had a nice sound to it.
      It is a sports riding position so can be uncomfortable for distance work as your weight is carried through your wrists.
      It would be good for short distance commuting through a big city as its small and nippy to squeeze through the traffic, that it the kind of commuting i do and it coped but at the end of the journey i found it tiring and will stick with the 1200cc Trophy.
      I think it would be quite easy to break the speed limit on it without realising as it is small light and powerful. But it does handle very well as a good sports bike should but didnt get chance to try on a track or country lanes.
      I would suit a shorter person as im over 6 foot and found it to be quite a cramped riding position.
      The harder you ride it the quicker the low fuel light comes on so it can be a bit thirsty.
      I would recommended it but only if sports bikes are your kind of thing, i prefer cruisers and sports tourers.

      Disadvantages

      I bought this bike last summer, and unfourtunatly only had it for a month and a half. Incredibly enough, this bike is awesome for long trips. A friend and I took two bikes down to BC and back, from Alberta. 3500 km in four days. 10-12 hours riding each day. He had a 1500 Intruder, and I had the RS. We were both fighting over who got to ride the RS. You cant ride this bike without a smile on your face. The next weekend.........i tried to prove all the critics wrong, ( the ones that say this bike is uncomfortable, and only an in-town bike.) by actually falling asleep on it while going 130km/hr. Oops. I walked out of the ditch with only a seperated shoulder and some cuts. So now, i'm just waiting for the insurance to come through, and i'll buy another one.....only this time i'll find one with auto pilot. haha.
