1994 Suzuki TS185ER from Australia
A good reliable old bike, a pleasure to ride
I have repaired many things on this bike, but the need for most of the repairs was neglect by the previous owner.
After having most of the bike in bits for repair, I've been impressed by the quality of the design and construction. Everything fits together neatly and perfectly. Disassembly and reassembly are as easy as these can be, and present no irritating unnecessary difficulties. Nothing has worn prematurely. Everything now works well.
Its engine performs well for 185ccs. It handles well. At 100 kg (dry) it's lighter than most bikes of similar capacity. The brakes do slow you down somewhat(!).
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
