I took a 40 mile unsupervised demo ride on one when they first came out and absolutely loved it. It had the smoothest tranny on it than I had ever felt, and the power seemed to be everywhere. The only thing I really didn't like was the powerwheels like controls and the pricetag...

The Rotax motor should be bulletproof. I don't like the styling, and am not a big fan of v-twins; however this should be a very good bike.

Also, your question is very vague. What specifically are you looking for? Maybe only current/previous owners opinions???

There is a reason Rotax engines are used in a lot of light aircraft.
