Actually, most of us love the technology of the bike, we just despise the Harley Davidson copycat looks and the carnival fairingIt really doesn't matter what any individual thinks, because sales will be the determinant of how the public receives the bike. Personally, the obsession with ride command seems more important than the real qualities that make up the experience of riding.
Frank Lloyd Wright said, "form follows function," so it's been my experience that the fairing delivers a seamlessly smooth ride in all wind and traffic conditions while offering the option of controlling air flow to the rider via the opening vent doors and electric windscreen.
Handling, comfort, fuel economy and available pertinent information make for a perfect riding experience.
Reading the complaints pointed out that a lot of the respondents hadn't ridden the bike or were upset by something a salesperson told them, which wasn't correct. I've had mine for 1 year and still look forward to taking it out.
The Challenger is a specific bike for a category that it dominates, yet suffers from the Goldilocks syndrome , where it's too big, too soft, too expensive, etc.
