Fine Beginner (Score:1)
Power
Good lowend torque but there wasn't anything else even in the midrange. 2 decade old 250 will put it to shame.
Ergonomics
Was fine. Seemed small to me and im only 5'7" so if your bigger than that forget about it.
Suspension, Front
Soft and forgiving....bottomed out on nearly every deep whoop.
Suspension, Rear
Same as the front.
Brakes
OK. Fine front brake but the rear seems weak with its drum.
Comments
Fine starter bike but if you know what you are doing you will be bored with it after the electric start.

Power
Mid-toned powered bike but can be very powerful with some aftermarket parts; such as: exaust, rev box, cam, valve springs, free flow air filter, to many to list.
Ergonomics
They feel fair but a bit to far back.
Suspension, Front
Good for trail and dual purpose riding.
Suspension, Rear
Little bit to loose and can't be adjusted to well with stock suspension.
Brakes
Good brakes. A little bit to loose in the back and when tightened to firm. So must be worked with.
Comments
Overall a good bike. Great for enduro riding/racing.

Power
Good on the low end, but somewhat lacking at middle and beyond. A better compression ration and more carb would be a improvement. You might want to look at the TT-R225 if power is your bag. Grade: C
Suspension
Good for trails but poor for anything beyond moderate jumps. Cushions well through the woods. Grade: B
Brakes
Fair, found the rear a bit lacking due to lack of sensitivity even after numeous adjustments. Grade: C+
Comments
Overall fair to good. Not a bad bike considering the low price but have to say that the TT-R225 is more bang for the buck.

the power is there for low end but top end needs more "boost"
Suspension
suspension is great for trails and woods. needs work on jumps it bottoms out of a 5 ft high ramp
Brakes
the brakes are good. but front and rear discs would be better than jus the front
Comments
