In addition, the telescopic front suspension and swingarm are also single shock absorbers, increasing the feeling of safety.

There were almost no dizzy symptoms that I experienced during the test. The brake system of the Combi Brake model also supports maneuvering so that it can stay on track.
Not only testing the bike with its maneuvers, I also tested the acceleration of the bike on a straight line. While not too long and hampered by more weight, this bike is more than enough to meet expectations.
