I bought this motorbike about 4 years ago with 9000km on the clock and since then it has run like a dream. My partner and I have used this bike on our L’s and P’s but now we have both upsized and it is time to let the old girl go. Most of it’s life it has been used daily to get me to work and back and it is very fuel efficient and has always been garaged. Despite the fact it is only a 250 it has a surprising amount of get up and go and is happy to sit on 100km/h down the highway.
Having a low centre of gravity, relaxed seating position, and good handling it makes this the perfect learners bike or daily commuter.
Tyres - Rear is about 3000km old and the front is brand new
Mechanical condition – serviced every 5000km, recently had new drive chain. Nothing to spend.
The not so good
Overall the bike is in good condition but as a learner bike it has a few minor blemishes, bumps and scrapes.
