Summary:

Show me another 500 that can compete with these bikes, that costs anywhere near as little money!

Faults:

Up to the present mileage, there have been no problems whatsoever, apart from replacing consumables, for example tires.

General Comments:

This motorcycle is exceptional value for money, and with a good rider aboard, can acquit itself well in any conditions, providing it has been properly maintained.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
