The engine, which handles power AJS Regal Raptor motorcycle is really old, which also correspond to the parameters and total exposure. From a displacement of 249cc gives the highest performance 17 hp and 15 Nm torque. In normal operation, everything is fine, but once you go on a country road and closer to the limit of 100 km / h you will find that it just will not go more and the bike is on the current situation quite slow. Paper top speed is 115 km / h, but this is almost unattainable meta.Převodovka has 5 gears and accuracy is not its strength.
Here we were pleasantly surprised. Although the suspension is tuned more for comfort, but a motorcycle and hold tight corners with surprising confidence. The frame is very strong, which makes the bike stable at high speeds or under heavy braking. Reaction to a change of direction is also surprisingly fast, and that too because the front wheel about the size of 18 inches. Brakes are powerful, reliable and have a diameter of 252 mm in front, but the rear wheel is only a drum.
As we already mentioned, the gearbox is not exactly twice as good and the bike would certainly deserve more accurate. The dashboard is very simple and clear, no built-in computer will not find here, but for such a bike is not needed. The rear suspension is adjustable only on overload. The seat is quite comfortable, making you feel free to go into town, but a longer trip with the bike is not well suited. The tank has a capacity of 14 liters, so the motorcycle range is quite good.
Here we were also surprised příjeměn. The overall build quality is quite good, as well as quality of materials. Motorcycle manufactures in China, so we were almost shocked, because we waited sloppy workmanship all directions. Reliability motorcycle is mainly due to the lack of complicated electronics, just above average and had only basic care and will serve you really long time. The best quality and most reliable part of the bike is probably the engine, and despite its apparent age.
Thanks to a very low price, which is around 1200 pounds (about CZK 36 000) this bike a very interesting choice. Although the engine is, as well as equipment at only average levels, but on the other hand, handling is excellent and the overall reliability of the bike is also very good. The motorcycle is a very attractive site design and hilarious. Overall it is a slightly above average machine, which is particularly useful for beginners, thanks to the stability and simple handling.
