    This bike may look better with a low front fender.

    The specs look good like front and rear disc brakes

    I like the looks of the bike, but the front fender is killing me. Maybe a lower version would look good, but more than likely a different style high fender would work.

    It's obviously an underbone type frame, and the engine looks like the same type pf design used for decades in Cubs and Trail 90s. Probably has an auto clutch. I noticed in the specs it says "rotary transmission" That's the one thing I did not like about the Cub. It went around in circles, with no stops. N-1-2-3-4-N-1-2-3--4. Could be very hard to find neutral at a stop, and there was no clutch to pull in. And I agree that fender is ugly. Maybe if it weren't so big.

    Looks like a Honda Wave to me. They just swapped it out with knobby tires, high fender, taller handlebars and a different headlight/fairing.

    They should have included a high mounted exhaust and a skid plate.

    I'll take the black one. It could use knobbier tires, a skid plate and high mount exhaust though. We NEED something like this over here in the states.

    I like it! I've always wanted a scooter - this one is kinda cool. I test
    rode the Zuma and was a bit disapointed and bummed.

    Considering the world economy, it could very well be the future of DP bikes.

    These bikes have been available in the Far East for years, and yes I like it.

    Look at the specs, long stroke thumper 125cc with wide ratio 4 speed gearbox, this bike was meant to play in widely divergent conditions, those of you criticizing it on looks should first ride one before passing judgement.

    Not sure if I like it or not. I like the concept. If it has a real clutch and a centerstand, along with a decent load capacity, I would definitely be interested. The Trail 90/110 has a very low rated load capacity, but could carry nearly twice that without problems. But as cool as it is, I never cared for it's clutchless transmission. But the Trail was built a long time ago, and almost certainly better built and of higher quality than this. There are still millions of Trails running around out there. Like the Cub they are based on, you could beat them to death and they still ran. I just can't see this doing that.

    A 200cc or 250cc version would make a great replacement for my XT225 that I sometimes have trouble getting on, due to the high seat height. Not looking for an MX bike.

    I'd get one in a cold second if I could. For those of you that think the front fender is odd it doesn't look any odder that that on your typical trailbike.
    Despite its looks it is actually built on a different platform than a Wave. A few years ago Honda made the Bravo which was kind of an 'XRM-Lite' which was based off the Wave, just with different plastics.
