Review of the 2007 Generic Trigger SM 50:
Generic Trigger SM50
Author: Mike ´Scania´ Phillips, 2009-02-12|
I recently bought one of these, and am severly dissapointed by it´s mechanical performance.
It might just be me that´s unlucky, but since I bought this brand new, it´s spent more time back in the garage than on the road.|
Little niggles like not ticking over and a stiff gearbox and it´s struggled to reach 15mph once or twice aswell. But I was riding it in the rain at the time, so if your going to buy this bike, make sure you do some waterproofing.
If you´re going to get this bike, i suggest riding it for 700-1000 miles before taking the restrictor off. Why¿
1. To make sure it runs propperly. If it does cause you trouble and needs to go back to the shop, it´ll come out of your pocket. As soon as you take the restrictor out, the years warranty goes out the window.
2. To get used to the bike of course. Especially if like me, you had no riding experience.
But i would suggest taking the restrictor out at some point, because this bike looks amazing, but it´s dissapointing when you pull off as fast as a lorry would.
Dont get me wrong, there are some good points. As I mentioned, it looks stunning. This will stand out when you join your felow 16 year old scooter buddies in the MFI carpark. And it is a beautifull thing to drive on the right roads. On dual carrige ways and main roads, it does get boring. But on the single lain backroads, it´s a masterpiece.
Overall, a good bike, but the breakdowns have really ruined my first biking experience.
