I had a demo for a couple of months

I had a demo for a couple of months and agree and disagree with some people here, the bike is a great commuting bike, has a lot of power not sportbike power but enough to get you in trouble, it is an 1100 and also now in a 796 version.

The gas millage it is an issue because it can only go for 80-100 miles per tank; wind can be a trouble on the freeway at speeds above 80mph (top speed 130ish) but also depends on the day. For me it is an awesome bike to add to a collection of bikes, is the perfect hooligan bike, and if you do the cams and the full exhaust you will have a blast, it does wheelie and does stops like no other motard. If money is not an issue I will say go for it, because like some other say there is other bikes out there; just go out and test ride them and compare yourself.

If your plan is to communte within the city on this bike you will have a blast.

PM me if you want I can arrange for you to test ride one.

Don't forget the Aprilia Dorsoduro also had one for a month it was a blast too!
