With the longer opt screen I had wind noise around the bottom of helmet so maybe the short arse screen would suit me better (when i get my winning lotto ticket). The plastics over the radiator seem fragile but time will tell.
It's a steel framed/swingarmed X-bike but it certainly doesn't feel heavy...but I didn't have to pick it up either...
SelfService costs will be the same as mine given both the air/lube filters are the same, not sure on the fuel filter though .


Overall...built to a price point and well done mr BMW...err I mean mrs Huskyvarna
