    The black one without the red wheels is nice. If it came with a tank holding another gallon and decent fueling I might consider it.

      +1 on the fuel capacity.
      The fueling issue, according to people who have ridden the latest version, it's been "cured".

    I'm in the market and looked at them at the local dealer, but I just cant get past the fugly exhaust and the jacked-up seat.
