Summary:

Good start in the motorcycle world

Faults:

Original chain was bad and I replaced it at about 11000km.

I broke the front lamp and left plastic on an off road trip

Clutch 'lists' and springs were replaced at about 16000km.

Piston was replaced at 18000km, but it was still as new!

General Comments:

Very good for a first motorbike, but not very strong or fast.

Low cost servicing.

Pretty comfortable for long trips, and also good for off-road.

The front springs are too weak for jumping.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
