Power
Plenty of power for trail & 2 tracks, did OK on roads though no fun on highways.
Suspension
Smooth suspension, was first year for mono & I bought it right out of the crate. Of the 8 bikes I have owned, it was my favorite.
Brakes
Brakes worked fine for a 155 pound rider.
Comments
I sold my bike when I was working 7 days a week & only had time to eat & sleep. Now I would love to find a 78 but old bikes are as rare as hens teeth these days.

Power
Good torque at low RPM and at high too.
It has arround 18 hp if it has a piston port top ring.
Suspension
Good but try to land on the front wheel because if you land on the rear the front won't work well.
Brakes
Good if new.
Comments
I have a '77 instead of '78. It hauls a IT 175 of the same year. You can shift the 3 first gears very fast.
Top speed is 115 km/h. The only think i don't like on this bike is the rear wheel who hit the silencer when the shocks bottoms. If you find one like this, restore it and keep it.
