Summary:

Great introduction to the joys of motorcycling... and enormous fun too!

Faults:

Conks out when drowned to death... Other than that, which isn't really fair, bomb proof!

General Comments:

It's a child's toy... Intended for nippers up to 10 years old.. But no!!!

It's a toy for grumpy, middle aged, men too!! It's a riot! 50ccs and 2.5 BHP, combined with a two speed automatic gearbox, happily and busily, giggles its way up to 25MPH!!

I bought it, very second hand, for my son's Christmas present. I spent several happy hours with a friend putting bits back together... and voila! The ultimate in 'off road' hilarity.

Small and light enough to put on a tow bar mounted bike rack, means it's easy to transport to places where 'fun' is permitted.

The brakes are truly dire... but who needs brakes? That's what feet are for!

My son, his friends and I, have spent many happy hours, blasting (chugging) around on the mighty atom... Way to go Super Tom!

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
