Very nice!!  :-\
In theory, practice and theory are the same. In practice, they aren't. Without data you are just another guy with an opinion.

I loved my 2012 C14. Just shy of 3 years I put 43,000 miles on it. Unfortunately I started having some scary issues with it. November 2015 I broke a tooth off 3rd gear. No idea how I did it. I'm not pulling wheelies or anything. It was in the dealer for a month to fix that. It was over the Thanksgiving holiday which didn't help. They had to remove the entire engine and crack it open to fix it.

Then in the end of May I notice some metal bits on my magnetic oil plug.

The last straw was riding home from the twisted throttle open house the bike just shut off on the side of I95 just outside Groton CR. Three hours from home... I got towed to a Kawa dealer in Groton and to make a long story short the bike had a short in the wiring harness. Under warranty but still. While I was at the dealer I noticed this nice Candy Lime Green 2015 left over on the showroom floor for $12,499. They gave me 6k for my trade in and when it came time to PU the new bike they set me up in their warehouse so I could transfer any farkles I wanted to keep.

The funny thing is I've been complimented on the black bike a few times. The green bike I get compliments daily. Who knew :)

Hi,
        Thanks for the info! :great:

I know ANYTHING mechanical, can have problems! :(

That's why I extended my warranty to 2018 in 2013, when I bought my 2012. ;D

Although I do not get to ride as much as I would like, my 2012 has been trouble free so far..... :beerchug:

And I do not see myself selling it anytime soon! :motonoises:

Kawasaki calls it "Moondust" but most people don't know what moondust looks like.  So I call mine "Duct Tape" because it's
easier for most people to understand. :rotflmao:

I really like the 2016 model after putting over 8200 miles on it now.  The power, smoothness, windscreen, etc are a big upgrade over my old C10.

Very cool tricked out CX 500 in the photo, Greg. When I was a kid I always thought that model looked really cool. It's odd to me that I don't like the looks of the current Moto Guzzis, but I don't.

Hi,
        I used to sail with a guy that had the Moto Guzzi emblem tat on his forearm! :-[

I thought that was pretty wild, but Motto Guzzi people are loyal! ;D

The funny thing is you have a lot of bikes out there that weigh as much as a C14.... :motonoises:

But, have only half the power, and people love them? :beerchug:
