  1. 650 Alp weight and known issues

    Transalp
    Hi all, Does anyone know the actual real wet weight of the 650 Alp? Ive got all kinds from 191kg to 225kg!!! Also, anyone aware of any 'known' issues wiht the 650 or things I should be aware of if buying? Cheers all, much thanks! D
  2. Topbox

    Transalp
    This is probably idiotic....but the alp seems much more responsive...more agile without a topbox on the back......is this me imagining things or is there a real reason for this...I would imagine the few kg of an empty topbox should not be felt especially since I have toured with full luggage...

Have seen low miler 2008 xv700 for 3495 pounds would appreciate views of experienced members primarily...
