Easy to clean, easy to handle through city traffic , good capacity petrol tank, panniers useful for commuting.
Front forks dive under breaking
clunky gear change
Bought x reg machine with 7300 miles on clock, very very clean. Use bike for 19 mile round trip to work and back home through commuter traffic , rides well but find forks dive too much when a little harder breaking is required(cars pulling out etc).
The gearbox is clunky, although I have managed sweet clean changes through the box, just seem to have to get the revs right.
Have taller screen fitted which deflects wind up above my head, although the screen does vibrate more in the wind than the original.
As I only commute(no leisure) on a motorcycle I find the Honda does the job , M.P.G. seems fine to me and I look forward to many more thousands of miles
