Reportedly very comfortable: "I can't remember the last time I rode a bike and felt as comfortable as I did on the launch. It felt easy to ride and had the oomph to plant a smile on my face with I asked it to." Nothing bad noted.
The comfort is mentioned a lot, as is the smoothness. I think Kawasaki have gone for the Mr & Mrs of the ADVTourer market.
