KIWI RIDER NOVEMBER 2021 VOL2 - Page 104

probably fairly similar and I doubt Suzuki NZ would have been able to achieve the low price point with the twin-cylinder model . The single will also be miserly on fuel and , with the 12 litre tank , you can expect a decent gap between fill-ups . Suspension is obviously not top-shelf stuff on a budget light-sports machine like this , but it works perfectly well in all situations encountered in normal , everyday riding . ABSequipped brakes are also more than adequate for the bike ’ s intended use and will make a wet , city commute more confident . This bike fits its brief and will attract less experienced riders wanting an inexpensive sport-styled bike that looks like its bigger racebred brothers , but is super easy to handle and ride . The option of the less in-your-face plain silver finish means it ’ ll attract a wider range of first-time buyers and commuters who just want a fun , easy to ride , no nonsense mount to get to work or studies , as well as have a bit of weekend fun .
