FYI coming off an Africa Twin (AT). This bike is substantially, and I mean a lot, smaller and much easier to handle than my AT. I was a bit taken by it's size and low stance, while in contrast when I picked up my AT, I was amazed how big it was. Weight seems WAY LOWER, the bike is so easy to turn or lean over while at a stand still.

Very smooth power delivery, clutch is smooth and easy, engagement seamless.

Looks better in person if one can believe it. It really is sharp with a great stance, compared it to the 890 in the showroom and I know who I wanna dance with.

Low seat position is lower than expected, another surprise. Have 33 inseam and I'm completely flatfooted with slightly bent knees. Will ride highways in high position and dirt in lower, Perfecto! And the seat, finally a manufacturer delivered a seat I think I can live with. Very very nice for an OEM seat.

The display is.....well, it's amazing, never seen anything like it, and super easy to use and toggle thru the screens. Great info, easy to read, clear, bright. Very nice.

OEM protection is great considering the competition, I'll probably wait and beat it up prior to adding on, and actually I bought this bike cause I don't have to put 30 lbs of crash protection on it. The rear pannier racks and Mosko Moto bags will certainly help in that department.

Lighting seems impressive, no adding extras.

Overall I am impressed with the fit and finish, ergos, etc. I'm 6 ft and there was nothing I would change, maybe move the bars up a few mm's? Can't complain. It's nice and comfy and feels right.

Here are my negatives: I may have to replace the exhaust, not a fan of the stock one, at least initially. Foot pegs are a bit small, might replace. OEM heated grips delivery projection is 1/23, yes, 2023. The control element is the problem there. UGGGG.

Not the manufacturer or dealer fault but the bike was slightly damaged in shipping, just some scraps on hand guard and lower engine shielding, Dealership was great about it and are ordering replacements. Just minor cosmetic damage, my first drop in the Rocky Moutains will be far worse.......

TIP: when transporting on trailer or truck, use the lower triple clamps otherwise you are going to scratch the heck out of the upper fairing. Glad I noticed this when loading, saleman said he was going to get me some rags then I looked below that beautiful fairing.....Bingo.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I'm excited and find it hard to wait for my Norden to arrive being a Feb-March delivery. (y)
