Summary:

Better than plastic fantastic

Faults:

Starter gear and starter clutch, and associated parts on the secondary shaft.

Now all sorted out, runs fine.

General Comments:

This bike is the unsung hero of the dispatch world, but not everybody knows just how good a bike these really are!

My bike goes well, handles well, it is ever so easy to maintain, and cheap too. It does have a shaft final drive for ease of maintenance.

It has very good economy if ridden right (50 mpg), but also if you have a heavy right arm, then it can get thirsty, hi 30's mpg.

The bike is also fitted with Givi full motor cycle luggage set, so I can up and go anywhere, or go do some shopping.

My bike has had the frame and bodywork all painted up in a pearlescent blue, and it looks fabulous.

What do I like about my bike so much? It is user friendly good all rounder, and above all, it's a mans bike.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
