Barko Lounger on two very fast wheels
Nothing has gone wrong with the bike as far as the manufacturer is concerned. Even the factory recall went without a manufacturer hitch. The mechanics however broke the front tire rear cowling, and refused to replace, it saying it came in broken.
The bike is fast, comfortable, and easy to maneuver. No muscle involved unless you trike it around. The performance is superior to any other bike in its class, and that includes many R Class sport bikes.
As for the transmission however, it really needs, no it screams for, a sixth gear. Gas mileage would drop to a respectable level, and the cylinders might stop producing micro dust particles from the rings (hold a magnet to the used oil the next time you change it) if it was being treated better at higher speeds.
It pulls a trailer with ease as well.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
