Anyone ride one of these? At first the weight seems outputting but it's not outrageous for a cruiser and the whole center of gravity is several inches lower than a CBR. I might have considered earlier models but they were carburated until the 2012 model year; sometimes my bike isn't ridden for a few weeks. I have no experience with shaft driven bikes but not having to mess with a chain seems like an advantage and I would think delivery of power would be smoother with no potential for lash. Power to weight ratio is a significant step up from a CBR without being more power that I would ever use and being a V-twin it has greater range in the gears but still advertises 56 mpg US.
