Hey. Its a big heavy bike. Its got the footpegs in a weird position. At least in my opinion. It blows around in the wind. Its not made to go off road. Says so
on page 2-2 in the manual. On the plus side.... They are on sale.... real cheap. and its a yamaha. Well built reliable. I like mine. Ive got a grey one. Only have about 450 miles on it.
I really like mine. Somethings I'd like to change eventually. But overall Im really happy with it. Check around because they are really cheap from the standard list price.
Good MPG on the bike too.
agree on all the above,
adding to the negative side
-no luggage rack (may come up with one in near future)
-seat is not comfortable
-very small capacity tank (3.2 Gal)
-it got a lot of torque that you can definitely feel..
-very low maintenance needed, no radiator air cooled super reliable
-great looking, you get compliments in gas stations / stop lights..
-great ground clearance 5.5 inch, you can easily go over a curb and not worry about hitting the bottom of the bike
-no chain - so no maintenance or lube needed (only adjust tension)... just a simple belt that you will eventually change so no headache...
