I saw one of those for sale around here so I did some research on them. There were no mentions of any mechanical issues other than they can get a little squirrelly when you get on the throttle. That seat shape has a purpose - to keep you from sliding off if you don't have a firm grip on the handlebars when you twist the right grip and the 145 horses kick you in the ass. Definitely not for the faint of heart. But like the VStars, they built them for over ten years without making any significant changes so they must've got it right.
