Man it's been great. On every metric that matters to me, it's met or exceeded my expectations. The shifting is quick (the revs rise and drop really fast), the steering feels super direct, and the bike accelerates and decelerates with seemingly no effort at all. But most of all, it makes a beautiful noise. If I had nothing but the sound of its redline, I'd be completely satisfied.
I kind of wish it had a gear position indicator. And I'm not a fan of how the low-beam works. Only one headlight comes on - it looks like it's got one side burnt out! Range isn't super great either: on a 17 L tank I get something like 200 kms. And I guess the low-end torque isn't really inspiring - it's really apparent when trying to get moving from a standstill.
I initially heard a random chirping sound (almost like an alarm siren) from my bike at random intervals in the first month. I heard it maybe once every 15 minutes or so. Only on throttle, and seemingly more often at lower revs (like 3-5k), on hilly terrain. But it's become really infrequent ever since I had the chain re-lubed and tension checked. Still happening but it's like once over a 2 hour ride.
The bike came with a Jardine GP1 exhaust, Galfer steel-braided brake lines, and super bright LED side markers / indicators. I installed LED tail lights that pre-flash before going solid, and I'm pretty happy with them:
