I never actually "bought" the bike. It was given to me by my cousin brother. He got it as an award for successfully completing his apprenticeship in 2001. I finally got the bike from him in 2015, after 14 years of his ownership. It was my first bike and still behaved like new.
Coming to the riding experience, it can be used for anything! I've ridden it on highways, city roads, no roads, almost everywhere! i was surprised to see that it never gave up. As a college student, triple riding was an everyday thing. The bike could basically handle everything thrown at it!
You cannot expect much about the looks. It is just a 100cc motorcycle and has decent looks. Talking about performance, i could touch a maximum of 97 kmph on long stretches. That was pretty impressive for a 15 year old, 100cc, 4 stroke motorcycle. My average speed used to be 70-80 kmph which ultimately lead to engine reboring, mainly because i rode rash.
I had done a few long rides with my friends and it seemed to perform really well. The way i maintained the bike was horrible and my brother would often mock me for the way i treated the bike. I used to strip most of the parts and make it suitable for off roading. Sometimes i would change the handle and make it look like a cafe racer. I had tried everything with it. But it never gave up!
Service and maintenance costs were dirt cheap. But i screwed up the clutch in the first two months after getting the bike and that cost me around 1100 bucks. I did not service it for around a year after that. Later there was a major overhaul in may 2017 and the engine had to be rebored. That cost me about 7500 bucks. That was i had to spend on it.
1. Cheap and easy maintenance.
2. Spares available everywhere
3. You can basically use it for anything
1. You'll sometimes feel that 4 gears are not enough
