Speed Twin

Hi all,
I was wondering if any of you had the chance to ride the new Speed Twin? I sat on one at the dealer and really like the riding posture.

Thank you for the reply. I have not had the chance to ride one but I really like the sitting position and the overall look of the bike.

Yes sitting position is actually better on speed twin, at least for me.

Also you need to be careful with throttle in 1 gear, especially on turns, front wheel pop up easily

As said the only bigger complaint is why the heck they didn't put small splash guard to rear swing arm … on wet road you get your azz wet in seconds and you look dirty like offroad driver.
