What to Expect

Best implementation of Rotax’s mild single but more expensive than the MZ and Jawa. Handles well in seventies style and cheap to run once over the purchase cost. Tough engine, available with the option of an electric start. Not exceptional, a bit lacking in character and finish quality, but by no means a bad buy. Worth buying a cheap one with ruined cosmetics as frame and engine are likely to be fine beneath the rust and alloy corrosion.
