One of the best mega scooters by far


So far nothing wrong, not even a lamp off.

General Comments:

I bought this motorcycle used with 3350 Km, and from the first test drive, it proved a winner.

Engine roll and handling proved to be top notch.

Braking is awesome, and you have and must use only the left brake handle.

Comfort is another thing, it's not a lie that my wife called it the limo of all mega scooters.

Fuel economy, well I must say with an average 4,5L per 100Km in city driving, it's very good for a 500cc 220Kilos 40Hp bike.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
