I got this bike as my first bike, it was a gift from my parents so naturally I am thrilled with it! I completely stripped mine to clean it up and fix any issues as it is second hand. The bike is very very easy to work on and service so its a perfect introduction to bikes! It also looks great. Parts are easy and cheap to obtain if needed. It only needs a litre of oil for a full change!
The riding position of the bike is upright and comfortable, you could sit on it all day. Basically its as easy to ride as wiping your behind. Its really REALLY cheap on fuel I've clocked over 250km on a full tank and still didn't need to go to reserve. The engine itself is absolutely bulletproof and will handle any abuse you give it. Change the oil every 2500km is plenty to keep it running well. Besides that the filter, plug, cam chain and valve clearance are good for alot more mileage. I weigh 9 stone about 52kg and I have gotten 110km/h on a slight downhill but that's pushing it. It will cruise all day at 80-90km/h no problem.
All in all a brilliant starter bike and a great alternative to a scooter.
