Great bike to learn on. Dark metallic blue with grey rear end. It has just 1000 miles on it. I dropped it when it had 2 miles on the odometer. Has rode great ever since, so no worries about mechanical defects. ONLY flaw is broken left front turn signal from drop and light scratcheson left exhaust pipe. This bike may be only a 500 but I have had NO problems keeping up with the pack. Also, I had the bike serviced at 600 miles. I have all the paperwork and manuals from the dealership. I need $5000 for it to pay off my loan. Thanks!
