I've only ridden it about two mile (test drive at dealership) because of rain today I trailered it home, I also didn't want to learn the new brakes and throttle in traffic.
Initial impression: Much more like my Seca than I expected (at least, below 5000 rpm) Only a little more oomph, but really good draw at idle/first gear, more than my Seca has. I should be able to really hone my low-speed maneuvers on this baby. Good handling. Feels more responsive/lighter than my Seca. A part of me is worried that I didn't really get anything different from what I had, and that I'll be dissatisfied/lusting after SV's soon, but I'm trying to hold that in abeyance. Frankly, my wrists just couldn't handle the ergos on the R6/SV650S/ZX6R, so I think they would not have been good choices for me.
I hope to get some good riding in this weekend. Any suggestions on break-in? Apparently there are two schools of thought, not sure which way to go. I do think I'm gonna take mototune's advice and change the oil at 100 miles, then do the documented service at 500 and 1000 miles.
