Power
A very torquey motor which also performs well when taken higher into the rev range.
Suspension
Reasonably stiff back and front end for a trailbike, could do with some stiffening on front shocks.
Brakes
As good as you'll get from drum brakes, they'll pull you up reasonably well.
Comments
All-round good bike, hard to find these days, excellent lighting for road use and controls easy to use.
