Getting on really well so far, it's got plenty of power, extremely comfortable and the suspension soaks up all the road imperfections, very plush feeling. While not needed just yet the heated seat feels lovely, when I test rode the bike back in February it was a welcome addition that I previously thought was unnecessary.

The display is really good, probably the best I've used or seen regarding TFT displays. Everything is very clear and nice large fonts with no clutter, lots of information to scroll through if required and having different display layouts to choose from is nice (6 in total). Then there's cruise control, which works extremely well. I don't know how I could go to a bike without it now.

Super slick gearbox, great wind protection and no vibes anywhere, a really nice ride.

Getting about 60mpg using Fuelly so pretty good so far, better than my Tracer 900's 45mpg.

All in all very happy so far.

I park next to a couple of Tiger 800s at work. Lovely bikes and I can really see the appeal.

Interesting that its fuel economy is much better than the Tracer 900. Keep us updated how you get on with it!  :152:
