    New T100 Anyone got one ?

    Hi folks

    Looking at the new T100, just kinda fell in love with the blue one

    Anybody got one could give me an honest opinion ? Is the power enough ? Is 1 disk at the front enough ? Do you regret not getting the T120 ? Is it an expensive whim/mistake ?

    It's a second bike, just for fun, already got a 2016 GS for touring

    Cheers !

    I have been thinking along your lines. There are reviews on YouTube, mostly positive with some disapproval of the front brake.

    Is it just me ???.........

    Looks like a MASSIVE gap between the rear wheel and it's mudguard......a bit like the old Ducati GT 1000. THAT actually stopped me buying a GT 1000, I couldn't take my eyes off that gap.....

    The new T100 is a better and more faithful retro looking bike than the air cooled model it replaced

    I was thinking about a T120 then ended up buying an R-Nine T Scrambler instead

    Put a tosser on it and that will sort the gap .

    Quite like the idea of a T120 meself.

    My wife has a T100 and loves it. The one big sticking point for me is that to remove the rear wheel or even just adjust the chain, you need to remove the damn exhaust!! (both if removing the wheel and spindle). An after market exhaust would solve this, but why should we have to?

    I found the 900 has a nice torque drive in the 3-5k rev range.. It was bang on for the A roads I was on.. It was lovely and smooth, rock solid handing ( for the speed/road conditions) and I found the brakes more then adequate.....

    Let us know how you get on..
