From what I've read, it's not even in the same performance department as the Yamaha.

Default Price/performance, whatever that is, rules!

It's not over yet, this year. We have to have the literbike shootout before we can even consider anything else.

Check out comparo at

Also long-term BMW wrapup at:

It's an excellent (and free for the basic offering) Canadian contribution with very good photography.

Then it's the "large-Bore Retro V-Twin Cruiser that's not a Harley" compo.....
