i was really looking forward to this bike but after reading this review i'm not sure... and really it's just one thing that bothers me... this bike is an '08 and it's got a carburetor? that just bothers me for some reason. fuel injection is cleaner, more precise and leads to longer engine life but they went with the cheaper solution...? i personally, and i don't think i'm alone, would MUCH rather pay the premium for fuel injection. that's the only downside i've seen to it, everything else about it i love.
