I linked this review to a FB group when an owner of a XSR900 put up a picture of his. Good to have a bit of feedback from somebody has had one long term, four years in this case:
Hello mate. Read your review and I would tend to agree with the majority of it. I never felt the front end be twitchy to be honest, maybe if I took it on a track… Which I plan to so at some point. The seat is bloody uncomfortable at anything over 80 miles, but some cycling shorts work great lol. I’ve also wintered it on the S21s and it’s been ok.. B mode really helps. A mode is mental and so sensitive to throttle response… Not great and a bumpy road. Caught me out a couple of times . So yeah great for a weekend fun bike, but commutes brilliant too.
