Great little bike, I,m almost 14 stone and have a 39litre top box on it. It cruises at 60mph, will hit 75 on a hill. Best of all? It is hard to get £10 of fuel in it for a clocked 200 miles. Easy to service using a haynes manual. I,ve done over 6,500 miles on mine now, I bought it second hand with 3,600 miles on it, so I,ve replaced both tyres and chain and sprockets. Oil is easy to change, onl g holds a litre so I change it every 1200 miles as when I,m not commuting I tend to let rip, still get well over 90 to the gallon though!

I have a full licence so I bought this bike as a cheap run around to commute to work on. I did intend to get an older "hack" so wouldn't be so worried about parking it in Bristol etc. I found an incredible deal on a newer 2012 one in great condition and only 1300 miles or so.

The bike is brilliant overall, it does 120-130 miles to the gallon even when hard on the throttle (which you have to be a little bit). It rides a bit like a mountain bike as it is so light, you have to be very careful with rear break otherwise you end up snaking all over the place if you emergency stop too hard with it (I found this particularly coming from a 1000 bike before hand). It is reliable and has never missed a beat as well. It is a little uncomfortable however - it does hurt my nether regions on trips of around 45 minutes to an hour but a gel seat did help with this.

As someone who had no experience at all it was a safe first bike not too quick on set off, so there weren't any unexpected fast set offs! As someone who had no experience at all it was a safe first bike not too quick on set off, so there weren't any unexpected fast set offs!
