The suspension is not as plush as the R1, but Im 225lbs before gear, so I prefer the stiffer suspension. I dont think I will have to upgrade the suspension on this one.

So far, I really like it. Obviously, there is no wind protection.

This thought sums it up. While on my ride this weekend, a friend of mine with an 09 R1 was with me. Numerous times I looked at him and thought he looked really uncomfy and asked myself, "I rode like that for how many years??"....lol

Have you ridden enough yet to write a review....be are all waiting with baited breath

Ive put on another 2-300 and still like the bike. Its comfy, torquey, and FUN.

I installed throttle cam and it seemed to take away some of the throttle "jerkiness".

The seat sux on straight freeway rides. You dont notice that the seat is basically hard 1/2 foam while on the back roads, but on the ride back to Houston from Prairie View, the suckiness of the hard seat is very noticeable. I may buy a Corbin???

i have ridden a couple of bikes with clipons and have never liked it. any bike i get will have to be able to take a single bar through kit or modification.

nice looking bike dude.
i really like ktm's style for their streetbikes

but yeah, i cant imagine that seat being comfortable at all

That is one of my favorite bikes....ever. I rode it once and fell in love. A little wind protection, and it would be the perfect every day bike!

You really should get rid of that ugly white license plate, it clashes with the black and orange theme.
