Thanks for this. Of course, I have thought about a lighter bike. However, twins and some hp were my requirements, and for street ABS. My other option was the KTM 690 Enduro, but ditched it for a couple of reasons. So back to the heavier bike.
Re the weight, the second disc front wheel, lighter wheels are definitely helpful.
As with everything, this all changes the physical balance. So I have to be somewhat careful.
