The 2018 is excellent in the twisties. Feels like a much smaller sport tourer. Virtually no dive in the front end when braking. The dual clutch transmission shifts down as you slow into the corner (especially in Sport mode) for rapid acceleration coming out, or if you want to accentuate this just hit the left thumb downshift once or twice going in. Plenty of power for coming out of corner fast. Lean angle is limited by the touring tires and scraping pegs, but it's enough for me. Also the riding position, fully upright, is much better for the twisties than a cruiser riding position. But, I wish it had cornering ABS.
