I was offered a ride when I picked up my bike couple weeks ago. Too busy signing forms, keen to get back to Taranaki and forgot/ran out of time. I have ridden that motor in the MT-07 and was really impressed. If the rest of the running gear is half up to it, it should be a good bike. The spec sheet lets it down somewhat. I shared a ferry crossing the other day with a bloke who showed up with one. He'd spec'd it up a bit and absolutely loved it.
