Honed (Partially)

Already on sale in Indonesia.
The shifter & brake set is about 2 grams heavier than XT.
The crank is noticeably heavier than XT.
Shifting: inferior to XTR, but almost the same as XT (good for its price, though)
Unlike XTR & XT, when pushing the 'ear' on the bottom of the shifter (for downshifting), the lever will be 'pushed' up, as well.
I dont know abt Hone R/D as I am using XT RR
