Running lights on signals are quite bright, love the headlights and they’re very effective at night.
Bottom Line: It IS a very expensive bike, but it’s rather special in so many ways. Italians designed it, and Honda brought this thing to life by balancing everything so nicely, with a typical Honda super fit and finish. It’s kind of like riding a work of art, at the same time it’s so functional. It’s funky and fun, handles very well, and squirts through traffic with ease. Fuel economy is excellent. With Honda’s reputation for reliability I expect unlimited riding for many years to come on this beast.
Other neat things: Super smooth quiet riding with just a nice little bark from the pipe when you twist it hard, multiple choices in shifting, excellent suspension for most conditions, comfortable foot forward position with choice of moving feet back, incredible LED headlights, great brakes not grabby but strong, tubeless tires with spoked rims, and too many more things to list that I love.
Cons: Expensive, fuel tank small at 13 liters, little choice in tires for now at least, and that’s about all I can think of so far.
