With a charismatic 494 cc, 24 bhp @ 5800 rpm, flat boxer-twin engine, and ver y tractable 4-speed transmission. It may have an easy top speed of 135 km/h (84 mph), but more vitally it has all the essential ingredients to create a very reliable, comfortable, and effortless riding experience supported with proper mechanical, braking and suspension components (gear driven cam shaft and a magneto ignition, plunger rear suspension, exposed and chromed drive shaft, telescopic forks, half-width 200mm brake drums, painted wheel rims, mechanic’s hand shift, fish-tail mufflers, etc.). You can cruise at 30 km/h all day on 4th gear, then open it up even without shifting down by simply rolling on the throttle with your wrist for an almost full-automatic riding experience. This is an exceptional road bike that is comfor table, easy to use, classy, unique, an instant conversation piece, with the promise of creating new memories and adventures to last a lifetime and still be able to pass it on to the next generation.
