It handles fine and the engine is bulletproof, but it’s a real dog (low power and heavy). Significant vibration on the hands and feet at highway speeds (and shakes over 70). Brakes what you’d expect from dual drum. The belt drive is terrific, unless you have to buy a new one (mine broke at ~20k). Obviously a small bike--I’m ~6 feet tall and my wife says I looked like a circus clown riding it. Cheap, reliable, easy-to-ride first bike—but one you’re likely to outgrow before long. Feel free to email if you have questions.
