Oooh, it's good! Went out for a quick test ride on Saturday (about 50 miles) and then to work today (you know that one!) and it is one easy bike to ride.

The Arrow system is a bit loud but not as loud as the VFR (also with an Arrow can) and there is a surprising amount of engine braking with the throttle fully closed.

Very manoeuverable, really light and pretty narrow.

LED headlights too so not scrambling around changing bulbs, yay!

Oh, and the thing I'd never worry about when riding an Aprilia, my first fill up showed as 58 mpg

Sounds good but still can't help thinking a Tardis is the vehicle you need
