as per the owner's manual, the GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating) is 565 kg or 1250 lbs. Dry weight of the bike is 694 lbs. Add 5.2 gallons of gas, 3.8 qt of engine oil, 7.1 oz of rear oil, and 2.9 qt of coolant...whatever that adds up to be.
Total Weight: 751.4
Carrying Capacity: 498.6 Lbs
I reduced it down to 490 to compensate for the difference between the weight of the liquids. But I would say 490 is a fairly good estimate. http://motorcyclecruiser.com/ Frequently has Wet Weight and GVWR posted on their reviews. But until they get a chance at it 490 is a safe estimate. Geeze that alot of carrying capacity!
