This scooter hasn't had any problem in a year, but just the speedometer cable had broken at 15000KM.

General Comments:

It has poor fuel economy for a 150cc 4T 4 valve single cylinder water-cooled engine, the consumption is about 20KM/L.

The plastic of this scooter looks very cheap.

The suspension is too hard when on bumpy roads. Other than this, it can go 130KM/h and normally cruises at 100KM/h. Quite stable on speedway, but the handling is not as good as my previous ZZR.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
