Mine had issues, and just felt under powered. I had a Ninja 600 prior to that and should have just kept the Ninja.
I have bought three bikes from the same shop, and when I traded the 400 in I found out that the engine blew about a week later during a test ride.
I know there are alot of people that like the bike, but for me it was the worst one that I have own.
I REALLY miss my KLR650 though. Out of about 10 bikes I have had in the past 20 years, it is the only non-sport bike I have owned, and it is the only one that got stolen.....Shit!
