I Ride: 2013 White Strada
Pretty nice bike.
+Modern rider aides
+Clutch sounds awesome
+Looks like a helmet fits in those bags

-Like the new Duc TFT display much better
-Not a bad engine, but I'd like modern 1000cc+ mill
-Really not a fan of that Bosozoku exhaust

For the money, I'd want more motor. I'd seriously consider a cared for used one for $12K ish

I'm with you on a good low mileage used one for reasonable money.

Clutch isnt that great for agressive riding. I had one on my supermoto for a while. When you let off the gas the clutch kind of "freewheels" and you have no engine braking at all. Great for woods riding and possibly for comfort but not so much for agressive riding. Rekluse has been around a long time in the dirtbike world and target the woods riding people. Many guys have purchased them for track bike supermoto's expediting them be like a budget slipper clutch (myself included).

No engine breaking is a no-go for me. That's a decent acceleration time for a manumatic clutch.

I'll think you'll find there is engine braking, Rekluse took over 18 months developing their clutch for road use just on this bike. the ride report if you have read it is really positive.

The New KTM 790 ADVENTURE R is a more affordable option though
