Bought secondhand fro £350. It was fast, but no good on corners, prone to tank slapping unless the damper was made tight. Fuel cons around 35-40 mpg no matter how it was driven. Basically a cheap robust large heavy Japanese 2-stroke. Not too bad on tyres, a bit hard on chain and sprockets. It was rebored at about 35000 miles. Chrome parts did surprisingly well. It eventually wore out its kickstart ratchet and finally died after it cracked a cylinder head close to a bolt hole, which is common at high mileage no secondhand ones were around. Eventually repaired it after tracking down specialist parts supplier, not a difficult DIY rebuild, and sold it on for peanuts.
