Full Review


 It has a modern edge to its vintage design. The headlights are really cool with the console being an enticing aspect of the bike. 

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox

 This bikes massive engine's power is well harnessed as it propels you forward in a way that will leave you hanging on to the throttle bars. Such power does not render good fuel economy though its fair to say it gives you a fair mileage. I felt that this gear box is easier to operate compared to the 350cc thunderbird. 

Ride Quality & Handling

 Excellent cruiser capability on the road with an appealing comfort although the bike vibrates blatantly at high revs. 

Final Words

 BUY IT if you have got the budget for the bike and for regular fuel stops and then get ready to leave every other vehicle behind you as you surprisingly zoom by with this cruiser. 

Areas of improvement  

The vintage desgin should recieve a break.
