Review

Decent, but lags behind the class leaders in too many key areas to be a class leader

get the best price

The engine is spoiled by a flat spot in its power that runs from tickover to 4000rpm. After that, it’s lively enough, but it means that to make good progress you have to work the engine quite hard. On long gradients, you’ll have to be prepared to drop down to a lower gear.
