Thank you EVERYONE for the feedback, this really does sound like an excellent bike.
In my mind I'm Torn between the cool Khaki-Green 2013 model or a well sorted Yellow or Lava Orange pre-owned one tbh.
the new 2013 would be nice but I have to ask myself is it "£4k nicer" than a well sorted pre-owned one.
watch this space.
I have a demo ride booked on my next free Saturday (in a few weeks time).
I'll update this thread with my thoughts.
