Power
This bike will pick up in the front first gear through third
Suspension
Eh not the best to soft in the front almost to hard in the back but perfect if ur into trails just dont expect to go out and land a 40 ft double with comfort
Brakes
strong but because the front suspension is so soft it makes it hard to endo
Comments

Power
The power is pretty good in first, second and third gear but fith and sixth it has no power.
Suspension
The suspension is good for trail riding but is to soft for a good jumping bike. However this is not a jumping bike it is a trail bike.
Brakes
the back brake is ok really but the front brake is real touchy.
Comments
This bike is a trail bike and thats what i got it for.
I got clocked at 60 MPH but i believe it can go a little faster.

Power
The power was real good. Wheelied to 3rd gear. awesome 2 stroke power. It kept up to a 1989 CR125. not bad low nice mid and kind of flat on top. The bike is a trail bike though.
Suspension
Good but when I would jump it I would bottom out somtimes. I never reallly jumped over 35 feet. For a trail bike it did not bad on the track.
Brakes
I tuned them good. Front disk was awesome. rear drum was real good too.
Comments
Great bike. It was my first manual transmission bike and was real fast.
