Well so long as your happy I guess

Obviously you can't test ride it yet, but if you know someone that knows bikes then it might be an idea to get them to try it out.

I'm afraid that I'm a firm believer in you get what you pay for and 395 is an extremely attractive price when you consider that a decent rear tyre cost upwards of 75

I've been looking for a spec on the web, but can't find one. I did find that pic tho

Cheaper bikes tend to be heavy too so the MPG probably aint so great (check that if your looking to save money with it) also is there a spares network in the UK?

Oh here's some more pics

Hi Pat, thanks for the pics - appreciated.

I too agree about getting what you pay for - its not going to be the finest (or even very good) materials, lovingly constructed, by caring individuals.

But in all honesty, I need to be realistic.

I'd love a Porsche, and have the budget for a Perodua - but it'll be more fun than a bus pass.

Regarding fuel economy, well - my Sanya (another obscure Chinese model), is getting very close to the 100mpg - I realise it'll drop a bit what with doubling the engine size, but I'll save a bit back by not having to go on back roads everywhere (and at full throttle too).

Plus, after having to find bits for my own bike, there are a number of specialist importers who can source & supply the various items needed.

More than 75 for a rear tyre? Wow - my Vel Satis has 245/45 x 18" XL tyres - and I get them for 100 each.

All the best (off to sleep now),


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.

Just making sure you knew what you were getting into, but you obviously do
