Great starter bike. I think it is a great bike for a beginner to learn to ride and develop confidence. A great bike for those who haven’t ridden for quite some time and especially for those who want to get the old feel back quickly. It is a fun, cheap and easy to ride cycle... what more could a beginner need? Needless to say, the bike is super. She can flat foot easily with the low seat, the engine has enough power to make novice clutch/throttle mistakes less trouble, and the whole package has Honda quality.
It’s light enough to be easily controlled, fast enough to keep up with the city traffic, the valves are a little loud but the ride comfort and ease of use more than makes up for that little shortcoming. Another thing I would improve on is the seat because it’s a little uncomfortable after a while, but is tolerable.
Great starter bike, awesome gas mileage, far less expense for maintenance than any Harley. It’s a bike to keep even when you’ll eventually get something else.
