Great little thumper!
By Michael Chiaro(Owner), Sep. 4, 2008
This bike is exactly as one would expect of a big single. It has good torque and is quite comfortable around town and for short trips on the expressway. Great mileage and only a minor vibration from the well counterbalanced engine. Outside of the occasional backfire, it is quiet, too. The light weig... Read Full Review

Awesome!
By John Kime(Owner), Mar. 7, 2009
Bought this bike a year ago, and have put over 3,000 miles on it with zero problems. And for those of you who think it's too small, I'm 5' 11", 200 lbs, and it handles the freeway, and the hills, just fine! As an added bonus, because of the simplicity of the bike, I won't have any problems wh... Read Full Review

Great Ride
By Sue(Owner), Feb. 10, 2009
I chose this bike because I am short- 5'2". It's a very good fit. The seat could be more comforable- but that's the only improvement I can suggest. I commute in NYC, am on the highway & in the city. The bike just works- it's got the power for the highway & spriteness & manuverabilit... Read Full Review

Great Bike for short women!!!!
By Holly Kasper(Owner), Jul. 8, 2009
I am only 4'10". I looked all over for a bike I can not only touch the ground but also hold up. I thought I was limited to the Honda Rebel 250cc and the Kawasaki Eliminator 150cc. The instructor from my motorclycle saftey course suggested I try the s40. I fell in love instantly!!!. It meets all... Read Full Review
