The Avatar 650
By Pete Meehan(Owner), Sep. 10, 2008
I picked up this bike in June. I was looking through the Cycle Trader, saw the picture and had to go investigate for myself. In a word, smooth. I took a test drive and was immediately sold on this bike. The weight is very low, compared to actual engine output so the throttle is highly responsive ... Read Full Review

Sold
By Clinton Worley(Owner), Jan. 3, 2009
I purchased the Hyosung after seeing it at a Triumph dealer. It's a bike that gives you all you want and is very stable in the corners. It has enough pep to ride with any big boy and leave them behind. I currently have over 13,000 miles with a few minor issues promptly taken care of by a local dea... Read Full Review

Great Ride
By Bryan Spain(Owner), Mar. 10, 2009
I bought one of these 14 months ago. I've put almost 9000 miles on it and have only had one minor problem. The blower on the radiator died, but it was replaced without any problems. I get 50+ mpg and it handles like a dream. The only thing I would improve is the seat, and especially the back sea... Read Full Review

These bikes rock
By danny holland(Enthusiast), Feb. 24, 2009
This is a very good deal. The 2 year warranty is twice as long as the industry standard. This warranty is backed up by the manufacturer and covers pretty much everything but the tires and brakes. These bikes keep up with an 1100cc cruiser and hold up very well. This is a very comfortable bike to rid... Read Full Review
