Back to topic.

100 000 bikes in the 1200 sized engine over that length of time is an awesome achievement. Good marketing, good selling and good back up service. I will take a few lessons from that.

You forgot to mention good styling - probably the nicest looking of all DS bikes at present, and that from an eternal KTM fan.
It's a friggen motorcycle, it's not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The windnoise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you shit your pants every now and then. Suck it up. -- Scary Gary MC

If you can keep your head in the midst of all this confusion, you don't understand the situation!

Is that a leaky waterpump I see there?
