Hi All ,

Just thought I keep everyone up to date my first impressions of the X10.

just a couple of hundred at running in speeds. Fuel is averaging 75 mpg(UK). It will loosen up and improve as time on.

I have had to adjust to the extreme braking, commented on by those 350 owners.

Brakes are fantastic. is nothing like as good as the but may improve. NO FRONT END WOBBLE. The seems adequate. I’m 6ft and the seems to lift overhead well.

The speedo seems very compared to the GTS which is commendable.

is comfortable. The back support into the seat adjusts and backwards. This is achieved by the seat and undoing screws to the seat 10mm forward or back. Nothing more than that. My wife is 5ft 2ins and never felt she use the GTS footrests very well as she was in the leg.

Not much better on the X10 because the is very wide. Designed for long legged Italian no doubt.

I bought the bike for something a little more to use on longer journeys. I think the X10 do this admirably although economy will be poor at the speeds. The computerized dash a constantly changing MPG reading as you the throttle or the bike pulls up or down dale.

The bike is quite heavy to manouvre and I myself having to stand it to take it off the centre stand the GTS which I can do abreast. It is also long and difficult to turn by in our 10ft wide garage the GTS turns easily. I have a back box which will the length. The box has no delivery date.

Disappointing that the Italians not have organised the accessories available at the bike launch

The oil dipstick position is a bit strange. No reaching into the bike to and check it but could be a challenge it up.

Build quality isn’t The female/male plug taking the from the main wiring to the plate light had not been in the frame and was resting on the rear and mudguard jumping around. A nut the throttle housing on the handlebar was not finger tight and the offside inspection panel above the had no T20 screw holding it on.

The panel fell out tonight before I it. ( Just e mailed the dealer to me a screw).

Stunning looks however. the are very efficient and the LED rear look the part.

The usb and 12 volt in the glove box are useful but I haven’t out how to take a feed out of the glove to my Garmin satnav yet. is no obvious wiring gap. leave it open?

So there you A week down the line and I will let you know how things are in a
