Cheap soft option bike for those who just want to commute. For those who are interested in more technical riding you're better off looking at something else. The front suspension is very soft and quickly runs out of travel, combined with a hard rear shock with a violent rebound the bike quickly becomes crash-happy. Brakes can fade after prolonged use when running through the mountains. The engine Read more lacks power and feels boring and is made worse with the long swing arm when cornering, tending to push the bike straight while lent over when getting on the power early unless you can get the rear wheel spinning on entry or pull the front brake slightly on exit. The bike is heavily compromised just for a cheap price tag. There are better bikes available for around the same price.
I'm really disappointed in the bike, it's cost me a few grand to fix the brake and suspension issues although now it is a very competent bike and can carry high corner speed through some of the most tight and twisty roads.
Love it other reviews say its not hard edged enough all I know its excellent .I have done 1600kms in three weeks.Fuel consumptiom 20 km\l, engine smoothness brilliant ,acceleration great , handling confidence inducing . For a budget bike steel frame steel swingarm etc it is far better tan the sum of its parts ,ride one and see what you think.
Bought it from new and done 400klms so far. White in colour and looks good.
Had a Carbon Exhaust fitted and it sounds a treat.Good power response and good brakes.Handles corners with ease. Not too much wind battering at high speed but without a fareing it does make a differnece.Not hard on the arms like sports bikes . Forget have a passenger as theres no room ? Well not without forcing you forward and they have nothing to hang on too. Got 280klm out of first tank
