So what’s the drawback? The way I see it, there are only two: weight and price. They’re both up, but only marginally. The MSRP is now $8,999, up about $800 from last year’s model. Curb weight is now listed at 425 pounds, up about 10 pounds from last year. You won’t notice the added heft (which is likely due to the ABS and extra fork internals), but you will notice the smoother throttle response, more balanced suspension, more comfortable seat, brighter headlight, and, if things get slippery, the ABS and TC.
