    12.1 volts is “deader than a door nail”. If the battery is holding 12.1 volts then that’s about 90% discharged. Standing voltage of a fully charged healthy 12 volt battery is 12.8 to 13.1.

    Flee that dealer. He is unethical at best and a thief at worst.

    There is no valve check or adjustment at the 600 mile service. It's an oil & filter(s) change, checking of chain tension and...

    Ah, written by the same guy that trashed the NC700X in review. I guess I'd want to see the study before going any further.

    I've had three fairly close calls with black bears crossing the road in front of me - twice in Florida and once in NC. That's three on a bike and one other time in a car.

    After the Ninja 250 the NC700X will feel like a magic carpet at 80 -85 mph. The vibration is more of a low frequency pulsing or thrumming felt at 2800-3200 rpm and at 80 the NC is turning less than...
