I thought it's too heavy at 209 kg wet - however, some of that is due to a 17.5 liter tank. Water cooling, comfort seat, etc makes this way less bare bone than the previous models. It's really a smart direction to go in, make it just a more practical bike while keeping the styling.

I don't know about having a 1200 cc naked - seems silly. I think I'd just get a Diavel instead.

This one might get assembled in Thailand too - would not surprise me.

Ok... on third thought, I am warming up to this bike... :)

My old S4 weighs in at 215 kg much heavier than my air cooled M750 but the extra weight allied to the 100% power increase makes the bike much more stable and comfortable , 17.5 l tanks is great but hope its now steel like 899 not the warping plastic that old models are using ,
