920r

So, I have just been informed that my 920r has just arrived ....Now, just need to go and pay for it and do the paperwork - hopefully will be out on it in a week time.

I never see any postings on the new 920, how come?

For me this is ideal. Was toying getting a 910 as the 2nd hand market here is not so good (990 and 1078 were still priced quite high), so when this one came out at a "reasonable" price, I decided to jump for it....

So, getting a little impatient right now, as the sun is shining, and perfect weather to be out on the bike..... I figure this week could be one of the longest of my life

Congratulations on your new bike!
It's a newly introduced model, hence the lack of postings I'd say. But that makes you the ideal person to vent your findings. Hope to read about them soon.

Nah Steve, I am in Barcelona.......

I went to pay on Saturday.....and it has a nice paint finishing.... Had the chance to compare black and white - white has nothing on the black though.

The signals are not LED, and it looks like all those complaints on the mirrors will continue on this version too!!!

Now I just need to wait for the paperwork, and I shall be on it by the weekend. Will come back to post my findings/thoughts....

Good to see MCN liking the bike, as it seems almost impossible to find any reviews on the net anywhere.
