Mine had overly harsh suspension. But it was older, and different years and markets would get different spring rates. For the rest, I agree. No heat on the leg, clear mirrors. Handling seemed fine to me--though I raised the forks in the triple clamps to match Kawi specs. From mine and from the forums at the time it seemed like all of them were assembled with the forks 10mm lower than spec--flush with the triple clamp.
