The best bike for daily use in heavy traffic


Gearbox, input shaft broken at approx 100.000 km.

Broken lever on gearbox at 90.000 km.

Ignition sensor plate failure at 80.000 km.

Oil leak from the front fork.

General Comments:

Great bike for daily use, very easy to handle at both low and high speed.

Reasonable fuel consumption, 17.5 km / liter.

The aftermarket LeoVince exhaust produces wonderful music, and makes the bike look even better than it already did.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
