I rather suspect that the 88.28 MPG required to give 310 miles is an idealised 'urban cycle' figure that you would struggle to achieve, especially if you wanted to get a reasonable road performance from a 25ps 250cc engine... or, to put it another way 'advertising hype'.

Hi
this motorcycle was in the ezine review of mini adventure bikes a few editions ago, so it is good to see us "leading the curve"

Centre Stand £120.00,
Mirror Extension £60.00 -- why not just fit proper mirrors to start with?

V250 with 360 degrees between the barrels, small, cheap and simple. Let's hope lots of new riders buy them so get introduced to motorcycling

Wonder how balanced the weight is? top heavy with a full fuel tank?

It does look like it would make a stylish and practical commuter (without side boxes).....

Interesting bike to start a riding experience but I wouldn't like to travel long distance on it.
