I tested one today and can now see the differences  in comparison to my 2017 model, I agree with the OP that the throttle is excellent, instant acceleration and feels more responsive than the '17 model. Quickshifter is fun, up and down the box at lowish speeds without too much fuss or snatch. The seat is higher, plusher, to me it rides and handles very much like the new Z900, which I was recently given as a loan bike. I felt more sat on top going into bends but am now seriously looking at buying one. The 17 model is a good bike but if you have the spare money, I think it's worth buying.

Yep to me improved handling (for the kind of ride I do) and quickshifter made for me worth changing (from 2017).
My first bike with quickshifter... and man... that thing is addictive

Almost same miles and same addiction ....
I was conservative at the beginning with these things.... but then I went full throttle and ... up.. uppp.... up... bam.... bamm... bam... leaving the gas open and it was a good argument to convince me  :745:

Got my first SX about 6 weeks ago. Now done about 1400 miles. Agree with you all: brilliant bike. First thing I do when a bike is run in is get the suspension set up ( if you are in the North West, Teut Wien at TW Suspension Tech in Preston is brilliant - I’m sure there are plenty of talented suspension gurus all around the country). Teut does loads of SXs. Best £40 you will ever spend. Factory suspension settings are miles out. Big improvement. Enjoy!

Safe (but fun) riding!

All the best. CaptainB
