    What I'm really getting from this review is that we'll finally have a rear splash guard that we can purchase!

    That license plate holder is disgusting. The bike with a Rosetta stone your can learn a new European language of your choice.

    Just picked mine up (MT-09, but same bike) on Friday and it was a bit wet out - definitely felt some drips on my back coming up from the rear tire. I like the hugger and the minimal tail section, but I'm a bit surprised that it doesn't block all the spray.

    I like the look more and more. But, apart from the electronic nanny, which I can live without, my bike seems to be better.

    Supposed to get mine tomorrow. Can't wait. You definitely pay a premium to get it as soon as it comes out and after the redesign - but it was giving me restless nights so I pulled the trigger lol.
