I saw this a few weeks ago and while I like some of his video content, he ignored the fact that the motor has been around for a long time in the R1 (albeit some changes) and stating that he won't buy one because it's a first year bike is kind of ignoring these facts. He's better off on his 250 dual sport anyway.
Thank you all for listing out all of his reasoning (or lack thereof). From the time I started watching the video, I couldn't take the way he was talking... I just got super annoyed and took that crap off.
