Impression of first miles: Love it
I have no problem with the throttle, solid shifting, quite easy to find neutral both going up or down. Good news!

I like the relaxed seating position. Perhaps I am moving back on the seat a bit more than is ideal (I am 5.10).

More to come, I have to get back on my bike >:D

Oh yeah! Congrats Asador, this is my favorite model. Looks fantastic. I have also ordered a Classic and I currently have the black Bell Bullitt.
Combo looks amazing.

The looks do not disappoint :D

I like that the fenders are Aluminum and the rear fender of the Classic should catch more dirt/mud than the regular fenders on the other models. The colour Sunshine Orange is nice and definately not yellow as the icon, even though in some pictures on the internet that seems to be the case.

I can do about 125 kilometers per hour in top gear und just under 6000 revs. So that is fine during break in. I am not going to race this bike. Perhaps it is because I was warned, but I found opening her up gently to be no problem at all. Don't get me wrong, if you flick your wrist, you will be pulling a wheelie, but that is not the bike's fault ;)

I still have the stock exhaust so nothing special there, but the sound is OK- ish. It could be worse, but it can be a lot better :)

I don't feel the look of the Termignoni matches the Classic or else I might have gone with that one. Sounds great!

The clutch is super light for me coming from a Monster 1000. No comparison, my wrist will be thankful.

Braking is excellent as has been mentioned in the reviews. The dash is minimal but good enough. Only during break in will I check revs, after break in I just go ;)

Look forward to stacking up the miles. The heated grips and belly pan are still to be fitted.

Let's ride!

Lovely photos and the bike looks just great. I'm envious because I'm still waiting on mine. It should be here any day now.

Man, it'd be nice to buy a set of spoked wheels to throw some street tires on and keep knobbies on the cast wheels. I really hope the whole 'accessory' side of things does kick off in a big way.

Great pictures! Your Scrambler looks amazing! Loving the contrast in color with the mustard colored tank and brown seat. :)

Those are some awesome pictures.
What camera did you take them with?

Hey, you stole my bike!;)
Looks amazing with the cross bar fitted to the handlebar. I don't have mine yet but I do have the headlight grill protector. Thank you for posting the pics, now I know how awesome it looks with the crossbar. Man, another 100 bux I bet! :eek:

I know what you mean about the Termi. It seems to fit other models better than classic. I ordered it anyway because I love the sound I've heard on you tube. I already have it too so too late in any case. Have you seen that one out of Italy? I think it is called SC project or something like that. check it out!

First ride in the rain today. Happy to report that the rear fender works :)
Bike feels solid in the wet, more so than my Monster.

I also like the crossbar even though I didn't order it. This was initiative from my dealer. I am still waiting on the billet headlight ring to install the grill. Hope that will look good too (it had better because the combo is ridiculously expensive ;))

What more can I say, I'm loving it!

Will post more pics soon.
