So my wife is getting into riding and we bought her this Honda. When I took it to work I wasn't expecting much to be honest as I usually ride a Moto Guzzi Stelvio 1200. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this bike. The power numbers seem low but translate into a good pace as long as you rev the engine and the bike handles really well due to its low weight. It turned into a fun ride and I even took a detour through some nice scenic parts of Toronto. That's really the measure of a bike: that it encourages you to take the long way home.
