Recommended Posts

Got the bike on the road last night after a week of changing parts painting ect. I didnt know what to expect tbh but god its so fun haha its definitely not under powered which I was worried about. Will sit at 55 happily. Took it up the woods for a little bit and performs so well, its abit weird getting used to the tyres which to me look like they are just off road but arnt that bad on the road if im honest. Have had abit of a wobble a couple times around tight bends but all good fun. I also like the £6.81 to fill the tank up. Which Is alot less then my car (£86 high octane about 200miles a tank)

Really pleased with it glad to be back on a bike.

£75 fills the tank to the brim, gets me a touch under 400 miles, 3.3litre V6 engine, 268bhp, 0-60 in 7.8 secs, AWD and a luxury drive to boot, means more money to spend on me bikes, thankyou very much.
