I had one purchased new in '96 and kept through '99. It was a nice bike, way ahead of its time. It was quick enough for me and very easy to flick through corners. The downside was somewhat cramped leg room and tupperware removal when necessary. There weren't many accessories either. I added a Givi trunk and with that addition it was a capable tourer. There was a lot of owner loyalty to this bike despite its limited numbers.
