What to Expect

Big tourer with shaft drive and protective fairing that betters many BMW’s on the road but can’t rival the Bavarian beasts on finish, torque or rider loyalty. Later bikes became 10mph slower and 10mpg less economical but, alas, no lighter. Poor running or performance may just be naff HT leads. Can be nasty in the wet with lots of cutting out; quick rust!
