2016 Suzuki EN150 from China


Excellent little commuter, quick enough and nimble enough in traffic


Battery needed to be replaced almost immediately.

Weak horn!

General Comments:

This is a fantastic little bike, used for commuting and the occasional weekend countryside exploring.

For a 150cc it has great guts, pulling away easily despite my 90kg sitting on it! Very comfortable (I am 5'10"), but I wouldn't want to be any taller on one of these. Looks good, sounds good.

Since the battery was replaced, reliability has not been an issue. The original battery was a cheap Chinese variant, which I replaced with a gel version.

Installed heated hand-grips for the cold Beijing winter and rode it all year-round.

A small niggle with it is that the tyres/wheels are too thin. Front wheel especially does not feel great in the wet.

Good size/width for filtering. Excellent lights to be seen by drivers.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
