Did you get to try one? I don't care that much about looks I've had all kinds flashy orange, red, brown, yellow. What I want is a smooth ride that will go both uphill and downhill equally, is dependable and easy to work on. The only way to know if it's any good is to demo one. I too have to wait for a dealer to get close enough. But I like the basic design but I'm sure I could pick it apart , like I could any make or model.
