I've got about 350 miles on the Honda so far and I have to say that if you want that little bit of extra power it's worth it. MPG is down to about 75, coming off the DR200 I'm not happy about that, but what really pleases me is that it holds 55 without straining. According to my GPS the speedo is only one mile per hour optimistic. A gas gauge is nice, but it's so inaccurate that it might as well not be there - it drops to only one bar when you still have a half tank! I believe that the stator puts out about 370 watts so I have a Powerlet wired in and it reportedly can handle a jacket and gloves if you keep the revs up. Fit and finish is fantastic so the factory in Thailand must be very new and well supervised. I tried putting my Walmart/Coleman pad on and there is so little room under the seat that the plastic clips won't fit under it, so I may order the Seat Concepts seat for it (wish they made an all red version). Probably get a Manrack as well. I'm not an offroad guy, just want to be able to see an unimproved road and take it. I love the DR for introducing me to this kind of bike and I do like old tech as I feel like I can fix it myself. But fuel injection and discs brakes all around is really nice. I'll post a pic in the next day or two.
