|Awesome bike (Score:1)|
plenty of power for off road and on road use. it isn't as fast as most other motorcycles on the roads but it gets the job done. even on the interstate. but you have to push her to get it going faster than 80. off roaders shouldn't have any problems with this bike. its more power than most other dirtbikes and all the power you'll need unless you plan on going pro.
controls are all good and simple. things are right where they should be. it might be a good idea to buy another seat though since the stock one isn't as comfortable.
very good. set up for off road use mainly since on road doesn't usually require suspension. its a little soft but its hard enough to do some jumps with. just nothing major (like triples).
same deal as front.
both work fine and has very good stopping power.
overall a good bike for whatever you want it to be. make sure to put on more aggressive tires if you want to ride it in the dirt. performs fine on the road but is very small from behind and can be hard to see. it also comes pretty tall so if your under 6 feet you might want to consider getting a seat that cuts lower to the bike and getting some kouba links (look them up). those 2 things will lower it a good 2-3 inches. i feel more comfortable on it now that i can flat foot it.
