Greetings from Ireland. Another oldie buying one not as a starter bike but as an ender. This is bike no. 17, ordered on June 9 and collected after many delays on September 20. Traded in a Honda NC750X. Very steady reliable smooth running bike, amazingly economical - 85 mpg over 2 years. Wanted something lighter. Anyway back to BMWs after 7 previous ones. Also had KTM Duke 200 - good but changed to a Duke 390 which really wanted a software update. Tried a 690 but found it impossible in traffic. Would have considered a new 390 but like the BMW it still hasn't arrived here yet. Is there a problem with those Indian factories?
