Thank`s, yes I do, partially! We have in Finland max. speed limit 120 km/h. On most roads it is 80 km/h or 100 km/h. These kind of bikes like XSR are best suitable for this kind of roads. I don`t drive on gravel if I can avoid that.

Hi there Uti, welcome aboard. Finland is my favourite place in the entire world!! Where abouts are you there? You're going to love the XSR. Puts a grin on your face just looking at it.

Thank`s! No, I did not tested it before! I read some tests and decide to take it! I have had about 50 bikes and scooters before since 1973 from Vespa Primavera and Yamaha FS1 to Yamaha MT-01 and everything between! My previous was Yamaha SR400.
Me and my wife live in City of Kuopio, population about 115 000. It`s location is in the middle of Finland
Now I have driven my XSR about 100 kms and the bike is just as good as I hoped and expected!
