Summary:

Cheap and nasty, beware if you get a dog like mine

Faults:

Leaking fork seals.

Engine broke down, needed new piston, valves, cam chain and tensioners.

Brakes very poor.

Neutral light has stopped working.

General Comments:

To look at this bike, it looks good like a Harley.

The overall finish when you look close is cheap and plastic.

Paint flaking of imitation chrome.

Is a very reasonable price for what you get.

I'll never trust mine again, but unfortunately can't afford a new bike.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No
