I have a 2013 - I've ridden lost of bikes and for me, the 800 hits my sweet spot. Enough power to have fun on the backroads and dodge cars on the highway. Light(ish) so off-roading can be fun. Great gas mileage (lame, but these days every penny counts). And I think it looks great! Best best is to ride one and see if it works for you.
