It is substantially larger and heavier than my R80G/S and those are routinely loaded up and ridden great distances. The wheelbase is greater than that of my K100RS. I don't consider it to be a small bike. Changes to the seat height, handlebar and foot peg position can easily fit the bike to any rider.

totally agree.. lets say for tall riders move the foot pegs further forward and it should give more comfortable fitting

I think I failed to convey what I intended to say so let me try again - by size I don't mean to say it is practically inadequate since I felt comfortable on the saddle even with the mid set controls. Length and weight are certainly on the higher side so not an issue either , seat height is comfortable as well.

It is the relative height of the fuel tank as compared to the seat(I guess an outcome of 60deg v-twin hence lower engine height) and hence the rider than gives an appearance of the rider sitting on top of the motorcycle rather than behind the tank ( for example an iron 883 ). This is a visual micropsia but something that might appear to be odd when a 6'2 90kg person is astride the bike. Also the pillion seat in its current form offers very little bum real-estate , either I will have to find a size zero girlfriend or make the current one run 10kms every day

Now that is awesome! All im looking to do is cruise, so knowing this bike has the potential to reach that speed and maybe more with drafting, is good to know. thanks for posting this

That's very interesting review indeed ,"they also mentioned MRF have tailor manufactured 170 size tyres for rear wheel ,any comments on that ???
How much do u people think the performance would come down going for wider tyres ???
And the reviewer mentions rear tyre size as 150 ,so much confusion on specs ,65nm torque keep doing rounds in Internet ,but HD site in india mention 60nm...
