Purely from an observational perspective there are some elements of the design that I see as leaps forward.
1. The wet clutch at the front of the engine means the bike doesn't have to be half disassembled to replace a clutch and there should be no need for clutch hub spline lubrication.
2. The top to bottom mixture flow with fewer bends in the intake/exhaust path should improve efficiency.
3. Cruise control is a big plus.
4. I think the water cooling is a big plus.
There are some things I wonder about.
1. Cylinders cast as part of the block. Would I have to split the cases to replace worn rings?
2. Is the permanent magnet alternator as prone to stator problems as the F twins seem to be?
3. Will there be clearance to do that simple up-front clutch replacement, or does the whole front end need to come off to remove the front cover?
These are just top-of-the-head observations. Once I see the bike, and once a bunch of folks get a bunch of miles, we'll know more.
