Summary:

Great, reliable trail bike

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

Great learners bike, but could also be decent bush weapon if suspension/engine mods are made.

Stock suspension too soft.

Engine 'cough' on hard acceleration from idle.

Can pull 4th gear wheelies with modified gearing.

Can be used for dual sport/commuting/supermoto.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
