The reviewer above is correct about the side stand though - it springs back far too easily and I reckon a few owners will find their nice new piece of machinery having a little rest if they don't park carefully.
That's a very easy fix though, hardly a problem.
How some dickwit came up with the idea a self retracting stand being safer than riding away with it down dumbfounds me.
I have seen so many people drop their bikes because of the stand not staying down when they over balance.
