IMG_8475Pictures don’t do these bikes justice. First glance reveals a very well put together machine with quality fasteners and lots of innovation. With the perception that this is a low cost entry level bike, you would expect to give up a lot and see compromises, but instead you see great components and craftsmanship.
In my opinion, someday all bikes will be built like this with the fuel tank below the seat and the air box where the tank used to be. Not only does it lower CG, air filter stays clean and also keeps the bike slim making it very easy to slide all the way forward on the bike. Ride report coming soon, after initial testing, I will go ahead and say this bike works extremely well.
