What to Expect

Detuned T500 with slab-sided styling that’s grown less risible. Handling’s good as long as the chassis bearings are changed every 15k and the rear shocks are replaced. Same main’s seals’ demise (which empties gearbox of oil) as T500 when the bike’s stored. Engines run to 60k without major hassle, should be smooth to almost the point of remoteness.
