I'm happy for him, really, just because I find them disappointing doesn't mean they are a bad machine. Over here though I'd be really surprised if they have sold more than twenty since their launch a couple of years ago. They really are crazily unpopular!
My mate John in Sydney who runs an 'Old School' motorbike shop in Hipster Central in Sydney has had one sitting on his floor for two years! The few people who have taken it for a test ride have come back and actually said "Who'd buy one of those?" With a note of incredulity in their voices, these aren't big horsepower Sportsbike guys, these are man-bun and flannel shirt beardies, supposedly the market bikes like the V9 is aimed at.
The fact that the new importer is a joke probably doesn't help.
