Power
It has really good low end, the mid is alright, but really goes into the top end.
Suspension
The front is too soft, and the back is good.
Brakes
Front are excellent, I don't have any back brakes.
Comments
They needed to make it handle better,I think that is the only week spot. If you haven't ridden it, it can be hard to get around in tight areas.
