Power
Low down stomp is very good, pulls anywhere in the rev range in all gears. top end is weak, takes a while to build up proper speed, have seen 88mph though.
Suspension
i fitted new shocks and reworked the forks, now very hard, great for weaving in the twisties.
Brakes
rear brake is useless, despite new shoes, have to constantly adjust the front to get decent performance, forget late braking, leathal!
Comments
was my first bike and i was so pleased with it, did eveything i asked and more. 2 winters and british roads and still runs and looks like a good'un!

Power
power is very user friendly.keep it in first and you can do anything. has enough power to wheelie in 4th gear even
Suspension
shocks are average and do even think about hitting jumps over 3ft.
Brakes
brakes suck, but the rear are the best to use. if your going down a hill though keep it in 1st.
Comments
good for beginners but better for novice.

I could not believe how well this bike went, first gear and second can do anything, howvever I can still get it on the back wheel in third and mono it for 600 metres, it really is great.
Suspension
rear twin shock front not much better, anyway about the motor :), no the suspension is fine for trailriding, just not jumping.
Brakes
they work, just, it's scary coming downs steep hills, my advice keep it in 1st gear.
Comments
Awesome for beginners, but still fun for those looking for a second bike
