It ids a simple and easy to work on, pulls the front tire no problem, and goes like crazy o to 75 mph.
I have to agree its a pretty solid bike. I tested one before I rode an XC. Seemed well built and has great balance. Just doesnt have much character. The motor acted like it needed a boost in acceleration on the low end. I know there is a trick to jump a switch out for better acceleration but the one I rode was bone stock. I can see the appeal to some though.
