I rode a few weeks ago with a guy here in Atlanta that has one. He's got a dirt bike background and wanted an upright comfortable bike. Motor is decent but doesn't have as much engine braking or torque/hp as mine does, but he was very happy with the bike. We rode maybe 250 miles in the afternoon together and had a good time. He mentioned that he had to prepare going into corners as I would just roll off throttle and slow down, he'd have to get on the brakes, and then I would usually pull a few bike lengths coming out of corner as well. I didn't get any photos of the bikes together but his was the gray/yellow version.
It seemed to handle well but I didn't ride it. He did a track day the weekend after we rode together, but I haven't talked to him much since he got back from the track day (Barber with STT I think).
IMHO the naked bikes are where it's at these days (well if you are looking for just a street bike). comfortable to ride, just as good as a full sport bike up till 100+mph, and just fun to ride. cheaper to insure, less money if you happen to tip over (not as much $$$ bodywork) and just a good bike to ride.
Yamaha has been on a roll with the 07 and 09 bikes. Good motors, and great prices.
