This is slightly OT, but I can answer this . My Thunderbird 350 has clocked around 44,000km in 18 months or so and is still a pleasure to ride. There are lot of niggles and if you can live with those, then every thing is fine. There are quality issues, service is an issue ( I mean, you need to have some working knowledge on many things and you can't expect that RE service will sort out all things.) and again Im saying, if you can live with those, you can pick one, eyes closed.
