What are the servicing costs?
There's no empirical evidence of what they will be. The reports are that the valve check intervals will be greater than 7500 miles, but no hard numbers are available.
For that matter, no true fuel range is available as we don't know how thirsty the engine will be.
Chain drive is a surety.
So, two of your three reasons for not considering the bike are speculative.
Personally, I'm going to wait until I have facts.
