Great bike for a first bike, has everything it needs to, tl work well. Only problem would be is it is very loud but that’s cool, my son loves it he has been riding around all day it’s good on petrol and easy to ride, I would definitely recommend this to anyone

Great first bike

published

Bought one to learn on and not dissappointed.
Real head turner with the loud pipes, looks and goes great.
Well priced so u don't have to take out a second mortgage to get the harley badge.
A real chick magnet too.
To those who say they fall to bits, i say if u look after the bike it'll look after you.

Swapped My Harley For This Bike

published

Wow what a bike! I swapped my Harley Davidson Road King for one. Harley are overrated. The Spyder is a real head turner and chick magnet to boot. Rode around Australia twice without a problem. If you want to look cool and pick up chicks this is the bike to ride!!
Chick magnet and makes you look super cool. Harley owners cower when I roll up beside them at the lights especially 1%ers. Easily leaves the Harley V-Rod for dead. Motor is superb.


This 350cc version is a Very Nice Cruiser

I've had it for a year and I really like this bike! US design (Johnny Pag) built in China, the water cooled motor seems like a copy of a Yamaha 350 and the frame looks a little bit like a Harley Soft tail. It's no Harley and it's not perfect, but it seems well made, looks good and with a few minor mods it rides fine and the price is definitely right! I replaced the standard dragger handlebars with some buckhorn cruisers for a better sitting position and they worked great. I would recommend this bike to anyone who likes the cruiser looks but prefers a lighter (but full size) frame.
Looks great, rides well, inexpensive
I swapped handlebars for a more comfortable ride

I got the 350 version. I found the ride too hard even with the rear shocks adjusted back so I put on a solo bobber seat with 3 inch springs I picked up new from Ebay and now the bike feels amazing - and looks brilliant. I would recommend this bike if you like a firm ride, but if you prefer comfort, just fit a sprung seat. Perfect.
Looks great, feels beautiful with the above changes
The standard rear shocks are too firm for me

Great looking bike,Gutless and the service from Hunter themselves is extremely poor, good for a learner with not a great lot of experience with road bikes but would definetly reccommend that the bike be fully test road on an extended test ride, after a few days the novelty wears off, getting to 100kms nearly revs the ring out of it
great looking thats all
gutless, very poor service from the importer, you get what you pay for.

Are you talking about the 250 or 350 version. I think the 250 might be underpowered for 100km cruisingk

In terms of service, please dont tell me that you took it to Maverick Motorcycles on Parramatta road?

Spyder bite!

published

First time bike owner. Purchased the Hunter Spyder 350cc EFI. Had a few problems at first with EFI but resolved eventually (replaced the unit). No problems since. Rides well, sounds great with the free-flow pipes, turns the heads. I am happy, for price, for style and looks - hey can't complain even turn the heads harley owners. The Sypder has some bite!
Rides well, looks great, priced right.
New EFI system - some inital problems. Replaced unit - now runds great.

Hail the Hunter

This is a great little bike for those starting out, and wanting a cruiser instead of a racer. I bought a 2009 model, and have now done 5,600 kms with no hassles, the bike always starts first time, and purrs like a kitten. Its a fun bike to ride, and turns heads. The only thing I would say this bike is lacking is a v-twin 250, or would even be great to see them bring out a 750 version.
reliable, looks good, love the forward controls, turns heads
needs v-twin, also less harsh brake pads.

Hunter Spyder 250CC EFI

I've had my Spyder for about a month now and had no Prob. with it, the only issue that am having with this bike, is the breaks, every time i hit the braks it makes that ugly sound as if there is no discs at all..
but appearnatly it's common problem with them, i spoke to the dealership and they advised me to replace 'm and i wont have that problem anymore... apart from that it's great bike and u getting what u paid for, think of it this way..if u buy that bike Japanese made u will be paying atlease $20ks.
enjoy it..
the way it looks, reliable
the Warranty is not that good.. the dealership didnot replace the Stearing lock for me coz i didn't buy the Bike from him..

I own a 2008 250 Hunter Spyder (AJS Britain/Johnny Pagg USA) . I currently have a 30 tooth sprocket on the rear but at highway speeds of 80kph or over it's screaming it's head off. As far as I know a 30 tooth is a smallest I can go. Does anyone know of another bike company that's makes a smaller toothed sprocket that will fit the bolt pattern of the Hunter (AJS/Johnny Pagg)
