Very good overall bike for the buck.. Bought new in August 2017. Prior ride was a Yamaha v-star 650 I put over 50,000 miles on that bike. The 950 is a very easy bike to handle, very stable and comfortable for my 5'6 frame. Only weakness is the floor boards scrape to often. However, they are replaceable. Yamaha has treated me very well and in my opinion is a company that supports it customers. I give the bike a 5 rating because for $8,000 this is an excellent bike.
