The Good:

This bike steers really, really good. It's one of the best steering bikes i've ridden. Bottom end it has alot of power and it comes out of the corners perfect. With 2 full seasons of riding, we never have to change one mechanical thing except for the clutch.

The Bad:

It feels slow compared to other bikes and taking people over on straightaways is not going to happen easily. The subframe is a complete mess which kept on snapping in half. Also the stock exhaust pipe fell apart. The first clutch plate also broke all the time which means you have to replace your clutch plate after a few races.

Overall Review:

The bike is easy to ride and the motor is perfect. I didn't have one mechanical issue besides the clutch. The clutch, subframe and stock exhaust are weak points.
