Got a 2019 model in December 2019 (previously had Ducati Scrambler) and am well pleased, except for rear suspension, so I’m fitting a Nitron unit. Other extras are radiator shield, Hepco & Becker luggage and H & B lower engine bars. So far I’m pleased with its handling, on and off road, plus its economy at 90+mpg (sorry, British ex-pat and haven’t yet converted to l/100km, or whatever).

So that’s 90 imperial MPG given you’re a Pom which is almost 32 km/litre or 3.14 litres per 100km, which is bloody impressive!

Riding here is very different to the UK isn’t it. Just come back from England in time for lockdown myself after a year long motorhome trip over that way. No villages every 500 yards here.

Post a pic of your machine.
