Cons-expensive service,front suspension is a little weak,Head gasket leaked at 12thousand kilometers.......pros-power,ability to fly on the highway,goes pretty well everywhere my old xt350 used to go,Decent 300 kilometer range.To be fair my dealer has promised to change the head gasket free of charge when ever i bring it in as it is still under warranty.So to answer your question i guess i would buy another.........
Absolutely I would get another one, loving it and I've only had this one 5 weeks and already put 6300km on her..
I have the head gasket leak also, well documented issue, not to worried about, will do it with the next scheduled maintenance.
as said above 300-330 km range is pretty good.
Lots of torque, very reliable, hard to find used, very desirable bike on the used market.
Fun on the street, handles like a motard.
My brother has one also.
One other thing, with the motech guards on there they crash really well.
Stay away from all others, Motech is the way to go...
fun to watch, a little long but gets interesting at around the 3 minute mark.
Actually its quite common,check adventure riders 800gs section.Apparently they now install a newer thicker rubber gasket.
