A lot of guys are very bitter about this oil burning issue. If you ask on here you will usually get a ton of negativity about it. Almost every high performance (or average for that matter) vehicle I've owned has at least used some oil. The 08 I owned burned some I guess. Just check the f$ckin oil and you'll be fine. A lot of bikes use very little oil but a lot of bikes don't have the qualities the Honda has either. The kawi will be a disappointment if you ride mainly street. Trust me.
Has the oil burning issue actually been shown to be the definite cause of any issues with the bike? I've seen no one with that proof. Running it out of oil is probably all you need to worry about.
