Runs like a 125cc, reliable and quite economical


Headlight is cracked and has a little hole on its right side.

Doesn't have a headlight switch; previous owner decided to use its high and low switch as a power switch, so when you switch on the headlight, it's on permanent high mode.

Front brakes is a little weak, probably because it has air in the brake lines. I just bled the lines and everything was fine then.

Replaced tires.

General Comments:

Handling is quite impressive.

Performs just like a 125cc motorcycle, although it only has a 110cc engine.

It can match if not outrun its 125cc counterparts in its time.

Very fuel efficient yet quite powerful for a 110cc engine.

Very reliable motorcycle.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
