That's the bike. Those specs are definitely a little hinky. For example, the front wheel isn't 10 inches, and they'd better learn quick that you're supposed to measure the LOWEST seat height.



As for the max speed it has no trouble running an indicated 60mph, but I suspect the speedo is way off. The seat height isn't actually as low as I would have figured, but its very narrow so feels lower than it probably is. The dry weight I am inclined to believe, its very light. I would love to put together a full review with pictures and everything for MO to put up...maybe someone will get back to me on that.

Well, as far as working on it goes, you're talking to the mechanic. The importer knew nothing about the bike, first one he got, though he seemed fairly good with the scooters they had. The importer (a Vietnamese gentleman) was very happy to learn that I'm an engineering type/amateur bike mechanic, and has asked me to help him out at the shop with the bikes when he gets more in. I agree that

this is probably how the Japanese got started...have to being somewhere. Should be interesting...

Here's a page with some more info about the engine.

Says it interchanges with various Hondas. I'll have to see if it'll actually take Honda-spec parts, though.

yeah, add "i bought a chinese knockoff" to the list of risky activities that need documenting (for our amusement)



frankly i think it's nuts to be an "early adopter" when it comes to life-and-death activities. i'm always the first to get new gadgets when they hit the market, but when they inevitably seize up i don't wind up sliding across any pavement at 100mph (or whatever this thing's capable of).

I'd be willing to bet the Ninja 250 makes more power.

I was wondering that myself.



In one of his posts he mentioned that he's 81. Not sure if he was yankin' our rods or not on that.

Good luck and I hope the project works out well. It would be great to see MO take you up on the review and report as to how it rides and what to expect if someone was to purchase one.

Not much of a wager...the Ninja is a 250cc twin cylinder and this thing is a 200cc single. The baby Ninja is capable of 100+ mph.

Are you talking about me? If so I'm not 81, dunno where you got that, just a mere 26. So, sure, early adopter. This was a pure impulse buy, but I've had an eye out for a cheap starter bike to pick up and turn over.
