lean angles on the right side are severely limited due to the exhaust. on the left side as well, but because of the pegs. suspension, while better than any other harley, is still poor, and non adjustable. brakes are adequate at best. and the engine is underpowered in the top end, especially compared to other bikes in its class. the rev limiter is too low, and it needs a 6th gear.

go test ride them, i'm sure you'll agree with me. i wasn't that impressed with it's performance, but i still want one! haha, but for 11k+ i'd be looking at a speed triple, used brutale, etc.

Yeah, I read up on that as well. Things like that don't matter to me so much, especially if it's just a streetbike. If I really wanted to get a bike for all-out performance, I'd get a SS. This bike would be a great platform for mods, imo.

I also agree, when comparing to a S3 and a Brutale... and for about the same price, either one of those demand strong consideration.
