I arrived at the dealership at 8:45 and by 9:30 was strutting out the door, key in hand. They had the bike all polished up and in a little presentation area for new buyers. I rather enjoyed that.
I have 160 kilometers on the bike now and will wait for the first service before I change the suspension settings, I'm letting it bed in a bit first. I like how fresh and firm everything feels but expect that a little more compliance will develop as it settles and gets some kays on it.
The motor is a gem. Pure and simple, it's excellent. I noticed the immediacy of the throttle but I feel the real issue people comment on might lie with drive train lash I felt. Keeping a well adjusted chain might help there. Regardless, I adjusted out some excess throttle play that I didn't like. The clutch and gearbox are both first class. I wish my old Tuono had felt this good after 40,000 kms!
After riding it home from the dealership I broke out the spanners and added new levers, a R&G rad guard, some race stand bobbins and ditched the passenger pegs. Next job will be the tail tidy, and then the Evotech crash protectors when they arrive.
Afterwards, I went for a ride
