Anyone tried one of these?
I sat on one at the RE showroom in Watford, and I have to say, its a nice light bike, reminiscent of the Tiger, but lighter.
I know there concerns on the QC at RE, but its very "Tigery" in its feel, and wondered if anyone had ridden one.
I may have a dabble when the weather warms up, just to try it out.

I've bee tempted myself, although there have been many "stories" about warranty issues and how they've dealt with them. Won't put me off having a try when the opportunity arises either.
I used to have long hair, took acid and went to hip joints. Now I long for hair, take antacid and need a new hip joint

Physically, its a nice, light Mini XC sort of feel.
May well take a test ride, just to compare.

Road test of sorts in Bike magazine. Good price and compares favourably with the other five bikes tested. Just saying!

Wouldn't call best part of 200kg lightweight and at less than 25hp I imagine it struggles to pull itself along let alone a rider and luggage.
