Strengths:    stiffness (especially that monster bottom bracket and head tube) handling, comfort, looks, price, durability so far.

Weaknesses:    Don't want to stop riding it, white paint job means keep it clean or it looks neglected(not really a prob)

Bottom Line:   
I'm a 180lb, 6fttall and have been training, road racing and time trialing on my Kuota for 6 months now. Light, stiff, comfortable, good looking, beautiful geometry, awesome handling, the ride from the carbon rear and full carbon fork (+ carbon seatpost) is absolutely wonderful, even with the 135g Selle Italia SLR as the only platform for my butt. No power is wasted, it all goes straight to the road, descends like a mountain goat on speed, carves corners beautifully, any crit rider will love this baby and when you peel off from six back heading for the line, rest assured, every ounce of gas you have left in the tank is taking you to the front, you'll love it.
