As a 32 year old rider, I have had a few smirks from riders of bigger 4 strokes, I soon wipe the smile off their faces on the twistie B roads where I live! These bikes are just so entertaining, the handling is forgiving and razor sharp, keep in the power bans and the response is instant, and the low weight allows outrageous cornering. Just perfect for new riders to sharpen their skills before progressing to something larger. Strengths: Performance for size of engine, handling, entertaining riding experience, a 2 stroke in a world of 4 strokes. Weaknesses: Plenty of TLC needed to keep it sharp, although mine has been very reliable too date. Running expenses often a shock too 17 year old riders, leading to many knackered ones out their.
