Fantastic, very reliable, economical and fun
Genuine Honda coils don't last very well, but are easily replaced by reliable Boyer equivalents.
Electronic ignition is a bonus, especially after pattern points snapped.
Head gaskets tend to go after a while, but it's still possible to enjoy the track at Knockhill with a blown head gasket!
Seats tend to break after about 30,000 miles.
Gear changes occasionally need replaced due to the multi linkage breaking with high mileage and continual use.
Very reliable, I've covered well over 100,000 miles on challenging roads in Scotland, Ireland, Europe, etc with few problems.
Returns 60mpg regardless of how fast I run it. Currently I'm doing an 80 mile daily commute on a mixture of country lanes and city streets.
Superdream wheels and brakes with good-ridge hoses improve braking.
Only drawback is attitude of a lot of guys who think of it as only a womans bike; their problem, not mine. Wonder how many of their bikes will still be going in 30 years?
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
