What an amazing well-kept and thoughtfully upgraded bike!
Only 2800 miles.
I'm super impressed with the bike, the motor is amazing, power everywhere, even sub 3K.
The exhaust is sublime.
Handling is great (I need to do a suspension set up for my weight).
This is kind of replacing a 2016 Ducati Hypermotard 939SP and will live next to an '05 BMW R1100S Boxer Cup Replika, a KTM 690 SMC and a 2010 KTM 990 Supermoto T (SMT).

Really appreciate this forum, it was super helpful when I was researching and y'all seem like a really friendly and helpful group (but with a nice dry sense of humor).
I'm in San Rafael, CA, Marin County just north of San Francisco.
Cheers,
-John

Having previously owned a Hyper I would say the GRiSO is no comparison, but you've got 2 KTM's that should satisfy your lunatic needs. GRiSO should balance your riding life when a little sanity is required.

Welcome.

Part of the reason I sold the Hyper is that I know it was just a matter of time before I got a truly spectacular speeding (or worse) ticket.
Every time I rode that thing I turned into some kind of deranged hooligan. Oh and the service is stupidly expensive.
I do miss it though.

You're in trouble anyway. The GRiSO is a hooligan bike too.

Great bike! Love that exhaust. And kind of funny, I also have a 990 SMT ... not sure if that is my travel/hooligan bike and the GRiSO is my day trip/hooligan bike? Who knows. Very Happy

I haven't had much time but I did a little ride out through some local twisties yesterday.
I am pretty amazed. The motor pulls and pulls, even from like 2500 RPM. Handling is similar to the BMW R1100S, which is very good. Not terrible quick turning but stable and neutral. Brakes are excellent. The thing is surprisingly quick.
Super smooth on the freeway too. I can't wait to get a decent ride in.
Would have ridden today but helped a buddy of mine pick up 2002 Guzzi V11 LeMans.

Another North Bay GRiSO! Excellent! I’m just north of you in Petaluma - happen to work in San Rafael, and enjoy the commute roads in west Sonoma/Marin occasionally: Lucas Valley etc. Let me know if you want to try and meet up for a local ride, eh!? Welcome!
