I have ridden one for about 2,000 miles. Yeah, itīs fast. Seat is very comfortable. Docile at low speeds with a low center of gravity. It handles well but oddly different than Valkyrie, hard to explain that feeling. Does not handle like a Speed Triple or Suzuki SV1000. Though notably heavier than a Superglide Sport, after taking off about 50 pounds of bling, it goes a bit faster. After installing a single D&D 1 3/4 megaphone muffler designed for a Triumph Bonnefille there is more grunt and a weird spot on the powerband that feels like the speed gods are trying to yank the bars right out of your hands. The turbocharger, headers and reprogramming should change that though.
