I have only put about 30 miles on it as it was not the nicest weather today. I like the bike overall. The sound is the best of any bike I've ever ridden. It reminds me of my 355. The only thing is that after riding my 998 for so long, I can't get used to the lack of power with this. As far as power and thrust, it's a great alternative to a 748 but not to the 998. As I said, though, I really like it and I look forward to riding it in the coming season.
