I saw one of the nakeds today. I like the light feel, the ergos and seat/tank rider junction were very good. Love having real bars on it too.

I won't be surprised if some give owners a flash in the pants!

Heck, I'd like to try one for a few weeks just to see what it's like and how poorly/well it is built.

A rider getting excited is nice, but a bike being exciting can be relative to another bike. A fat bike with a low RPM range dumbed down to 47 HP does not come across as exciting in my book. Geez,...

If anything like the SXS off road stuff (I have a SXS shock on my EXC), these parts will be as expensive as the entire bike! :lol3

I ride a modded Ninja 300 which is pretty fooking boring, and all I read is the 500 is worse! Less fun to ride. You can't tell me a RZ350 or 450SMR is just as much fun as a Honda (Accord) 500. :freaky
