    Have to say, I much prefer the original round headlight. Always liked the Neo Sport design language....now they seem to be diluting it a bit.

    While I like the new batch of Japanese retro standards style wise, I keep wishing that one of the Asian brands would finally take another chance and make a sporty retro-neo or whatever standard style bike with shaft drive.

    I think they just tweaked it to get past the new European emission rules. Other than that it looks like the same bike, though I think the blacked out version gets a quick shifter. They're going to need something, it costs more and isn't as fast as some of the other offerings.

    I’m really digging that thing. Curious to hear how the fueling is, apparently the previous model had a noticeable flat spot. Also, it was a PITA to get to the fitting to loosen up the rear hub to adjust the chain due to the license plate mount.

    is that the black edition? Congrats - she’s a beauty.

    I did ecu flash and rapid bike on both 18 and 19 models i own , would image with an euro5 this will be even worst (but i dorve just a pre-saerie)
    As hater of the oem tag holder , it´s already landed in the garbage , than there are no probs to register the chain.

    Came really close to buying one of these back in 2018... really love the way it looks in black. This time I may just have to go for one. There seem to be hardly 2021's any in the US market yet... the closest one I can find listed in dealer inventory is several hour away.

    Let us know your impressions after you get some seat time on yours!

    Has anyone in the US seen one of these on a dealer's floor?
