Owned the original (green with yellow details, no windows) tent for over 5 years and still using it every year whilst motor touring on a Versys 650. The QE system is a doddle to erect, has lasted through all conditions and has been a trusted choice for every moto-camping tour I've done. I would highly recommend the additional footprint to allow you to use the porch as a proper drying area in wet conditions. I also recommend the extra Stormforce guy ropes as the tent is quite large and suffers in windy Scottish conditions. Once pegged down properly with the footprint in place you have a weather proof shelter for days at a time. The materials and construction have proven their longevity to me. The only repairs I have had to do have been a patch repair on the main sleeping tub when I pitched it on a sharp root without the footprint and I have just (2019 - 5 years old) broken a tent pole whilst erecting the tent in stormy Cornish weather. Downsides are weight, pack size and the process of packing away. The tent can capture air when folding down so it can be a struggle to compact it enough to get into the tent bag. I alleviate this by keeping the sleeping pod main door unzipped but leaving the insect net screen zipped up, as this lets the air out but still protect from insects, leaves etc. Very highly recommended.
Good tent overhaul. Easy to un pack and put up. Can be a problem putting down and re bagging tent again. Would be a lot easy to pack and roll up if did not have the large front window in the door, (Only my thoughts.) two front side windows let enough light in the porch. But still a nice Biker Tent.

I have had 3 previous khyam tents and can not understand why they have the silly little (cheap) plastic d rings as the only way to secure the back of the tent to the ground the first time I put this tent up 1 of the d rings shatteredwhich is annoying
