I rode one on a demo ride - unimpressed (handling was poor compared with a DL 1000, even more so compared with the DL 650).

They are much happier with new rubber. The standard Metzeler rubber didn't really seem to work with the bike set-up.

Scott has replaced his tyres, and I think it is great fun. A bit more flickable than a Strom
