Summary:

Upright superbike

Faults:

At about 10,000 miles, the chain and sprockets went out.

At about 20,000 miles, the chain and sprockets went out. Also did a minor tune up at this time; new plugs and valve adjustment.

At about 30,000 miles, the chain and sprockets went out.

Every 3k-5k miles, the front and rear tires need replacing.

Every 3k-5k miles, changed oil and filter.

Nothing else went wrong with this bike.

General Comments:

Very fast and handles very well, however the only complaint I had was that the front suspension is not very good.

Love the upright riding position.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
