pro's...electronic suspension adjusting on the fly, more comfy than the busa, maint free driveline.

con's...expensive and not as much power as the busa.

Id say yes, but thats me.
Then again, lets review the ol WitchDoctor.
Wife has a Triumph...so he likes bikes from Europe.
and has an RC51, so hes not concerned about how heavy that bmw is.

So, with that in mind, then okay...Ill allow it

:laughing6

Honestly though, thats a clean bike. It might not be as strong or have as big of performance numbers as the 14 or the Busa, but the strong point is how many of those do you see on the road? Not alot.

yeah, shaft drive bike are supposed to be super maintenance free, plus I hear they feel different when riding.
The on the fly suspension is cool though.

I have had a couple shaft driven bikes before...they aren't too different to ride. They just tend to torque over if traction is lost to the rear wheel.

I think thats is what was meant when I heard about it. Would that give the bike a feeling of the rear standing up underneath the rider?
