Summary:

Very reliable and inexpensive to operate

Faults:

Right side signal light stopped working. It was corrosion in a connector, simply from the age of the bike.

Gas cap loosened and rattled. Solved this with a new gasket.

SEVERE brake squeal. Looking for a fix.

General Comments:

Great styling.

Love the thin front tire.

Seems to have enough power for the bike.

Commute to work (70km) each way, and love the economy.

Seat is quite uncomfortable. Considering purchase of a new seat.

Overall, very good quality in a great handling bike.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
