I have ridden 50,000ks on my twin spark Dakar. I wish to make it clear that it does not vibrate and is a comfortable long distance all roads tourer. Here's the good and the bad.


Powerful, reliable, smooth and economical motor
Great handling
Great styling


Too heavy
Routine servicing is a pain
notchy gear box
no helmet lock
indicators not flexible
