    Might exchange my Harley for a 2015 Explorer XCX in near future.

    Will testride one soon, but would like to know if anyone here owns an example, and if they are happy with it.

    Excellent!

    They are shelling them out now, I'll get a white one with heated grips, heated seat and side luggage for 143.900 Swedish Inflated crowns

    I know the 2016 model year will have radial Brembo brakes, electronic adjustable suspension, and possibly also electrically adjustable wind screen amongst other gizmos.
    But then the price would be higher.

    I have a late 2014 TEX-XC, and i think its a great bike. Engine is stong and pulls well in all gears. A few basic mods to the bike make it almost perfect:

    - upper crash bars
    - either a hugger, shock-sock or a shock-splash-guard
    - radiator protector
    - and depending on your height, perhaps some bar risers

    If you want to save weight and-or make a slightly better exhaust noise, a number of reasonably priced exhaust systems are available (£100-£300).
