Right bike, wrong conclusion.
Dig a little deeper.

I find it interesting the guy making the video is affiliated with Traxxion.  Certainly not saying there is no issue here and will be interesting to see how Honda responds.

agree with it or not, it's a pretty good heads up for anyone thinking about buying one. As a heavier rider I have to do upgrades to any suspension, but this one looks pretty weak, and slop in the steering after 300 miles?...that would make me wait on a purchase.

Good thing I'm not an "early adopter."  I pretty much never buy the first year of a new or re-designed vehicle. I like to let someone else do the beta testing and let the manufacturer sort out the issues.
