Power
Smooth and nice all the way to the redline. It made it up some pretty steep hills without coughing and i jumped it without flaming out.
Ergonomics
I felt a little cramped on this bike after riding my PE (I have a more open bar bend)but it was comfortable none the less
Suspension, Front
Air forks, more than likely taken from the previous year's PE250. They were nice.
Suspension, Rear
The full floater, this is GOD! I've never felt any thing so smooth!
Brakes
Eck, drums. The engine braking was an immense help, the drums (along with everything else) were completely 100% original. Just not well used
Comments
If the owner of this bike ever decideds to sell this bike, I will post my kidneys on ebay to pay for it!

Power
this bike has a lot of power, it never got stuck ANYWHERE!!!!
Suspension
the suspension is all right, but it seems a little soft.....
Brakes
the brakes are fairly good, considering they're drum brakes
Comments

Power
I found power to be ok for such a quiet machine, but soon after getting used to the bike I replace the muffler with a "Peter Allen" Power pipe and replace the main jet in the carbie (came with the pipe)....things were much more fun after the change, albeit a fair bit louder.
Suspension
Couldn't fault the suspension, and it handled everything that was thrown at it. From not only myself.....
Brakes
Nothing flash, but they never gave any heart problems
Comments
I enjoyed the decrompression lever that it came with. Made for very easy starting Hot or cold. And was especially fun after the installation of the power pipe.....you could cruise down a hill, pull the lever in and get 1.5 - 2ft flames shooting out the pipe :-)...great fun for night riding
