Watching burning tread does not tempt me to buy. That is good tread prob worth a few hunnerd miles...
I watched both vids with the sound off and of course the 2nd one was better but overall, underwhelmed.
Sight, sound, touch/ride, and what other people are saying is the catalyst for getting this one. I came close to getting a 2014 CTX1300. Saw this one and decided to take a near 200 mile drive to look at it. Pretty much what I expected since I did a good bit of research beforehand.
The Honda commercial that stood out most for me is when they would say... "you meet the nicest people on a Honda". :laugh:
I have seen plenty tires smoked down to nothing on as little 50cc vespas. it doesn't take a monster motor to smoke a tire. it does require the absence of properly firing synapsis and common sense. aka no brains.
