Hmmm......comfortable seat he says. No clunk into first he says. Great finish he says.....

The rest is true, but the standard seat sucks after 160 km, the neutral to first is like throwing a spanner into a mower and the paint is very thin and scratches easily. Despite that I love my bike

I've had better seats for sure but the Bandit seat is ok for 800km days for me.  Paint is crap. Finish is poor. Gearbox is ok after 40,000km

I've no complaints about comfort, I've had worse. Paint is thin and scratches easily. The gearbox still makes a BIG "clunk" going into first, and my Bandit has 55k on the clock. 
But value for money, (IMHO) it's still pretty good!

That bloke should listen to his own video - you can clearly hear it clunk into first! Looks like a marketing exercise.
