Man on the street's bike.
Bought the bike without reading reviews. If you read the reviews you would think is a cheap piece of junk, and be discouraged. Its not, rest assured.
The problem is that people will say it will never keep up with litre bikes and lacks equipment, blah blah blah. It will on the street, back roads and mountain passes. The bike is very capable of performance and thrills you seek. The everyday rider, man on the street, will be more than happy. The blue collar man on a litre bike will never pull ahead or absolutely smash you if that's your thi...
A great all purpose road bike
Its not a sports bike if you want one of those get at GSXR its a capable bike with usable mid range power and a taller gearing that makes a city commute a pleasure. It can get up and mambo and corners well for the average rider like me. Mine is lowered but I am 6 foot the lowering 20 mm give improved straight line stability and better feedback plus a GPR can to add some safety noise . I have owned about 20 bikes and this is the best fit yet for me in the real world
Cheap just like the price
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 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.
Handling , fueling , instruments
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
