A few years to go with R&D. Experience required in both riding and mechanical
Battery failed within one week.
Would not idle.
Air fuel adjustment just reverted back to poor setting.
Kick start is not calibrated properly to shaft, and sits proud.
Control switch mounts are loose and cannot be tightened without filing or packing.
Seat is dangerous, as the male fitting nipple only just fits into the female chassis slot by about 1mm.
Front guard has discoloured, and it's been stored in a garage since new?
Fingers hit the handle bar x bar when turning the key.
Accelerator handle has "stripped" and overturns by about mm in rotation.
Condenser packed it in at about 90km.
Travels well when not about to stall. Have found that starting on choke and running on closed for about 10 minutes, gives sufficient "warm up" to avoid stalls.
Quiet, relatively smooth runner, and is suited well for inner city commuting.
Would probably suit recreational rego in Victoria, ride around the van park on holidays, pickup light supplies etc.
I would not recommend this bike for a learner, as it lacks power to get out of trouble, and is plagued with reliability issues. A stall at an intersection could prove fatal. Very poor re-sale value, even given its low purchase price.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? No
