I have to you that I wasn’t the most motorcycle reviewer in the world the Daelim distributor called up and “we have a 250cc Motorbike for you to try out” you see I have by unfortunate (??) twist of become the Motorcycle Review go to guy for bikes”  and I have always Daelim as a scooter manufacturer scoots by the way!) so it was with trepidation that I followed into the warehouse to take a at the Daelim “Roadwin F4”. that’s right Roadwin. of roads?

Winner on the road? F4. some sort of Fighter Whatever the case, and as passé as gags” are. the name is too easy to exploit and I was eagerly the good natured roasting to

However the sight that me was very much a surprise, a low seated sports bike was there amid the 50cc Complete with race paint and full fairings. that isn’t what I was hmm. Then I got yet another the price. a fully featured style sport bike for six grand(in our “down under” (Apparently to hit the US at around $3200))! Ok is a pretty good start. so I on, fired up the little guy and took well eventually (more

The first thing that you mounting the Roadwin is the physical it is nice and small. unlike other 250cc sport bikes which aim to give the of a 600cc supersport  the Daelim has built with sport but more learner (and at the of sounding sexist) female dimensions. The seat is nice and the tank is reasonably narrow and is easily accessible with the and controls in a not too extreme location.

The only thing that fit this compact prerequisite is the lever. which caused me initial consternation. You see I have hands and I couldn’t get the bike to I thought I was out of practice and had forgotten to put the in gear or something equally then I stalled.

It turns out the doesn’t engage until the is nearly all the way out. Hollywood that he had to use the lever half way (toward the bars) so he could it with his smaller hands. lack of travel would controlling the bike (including the engine for braking) difficult for riders who are likely to be the main I’m not sure if this is a feature of if the adjustment of the clutch on the bike was less than but I had to mention it as although you get used to it, it is a than ideal trait.

The second thing that you is an easy to read, modern dash cluster with a blue glow. There is a visible speed and rev readout with a fuel gauge and although it is missing a gear which has become something of a feature of most new bikes.

the Roadwin is where it comes its own. is it fast? Well. no, but reasonably priced 4 … bikes seldom are! is at least adequate and it will its own on suburban streets or the freeway.

The handling however is the real of this machine, I was expecting the price) to tell you negative about soft shocks and no however I am happy to report the light weight and low narrow of the Roadwin make it a joy to throw I have to admit having an blast in tight windy and the day to day traffic samba.

Suspension is up to the job and there is a bit of dive under as expected, overall it works and doesn’t demand too much of the Breaking is handled admirably by the front discs and I always had that it would drag my to a standstill in plenty of time. or at in plenty of time to flick the around any obstacle in my path.

The overall impression of this contrary to my initial concerns is of a built, solid performer looks absolutely fantastic. For pocket change you get a responsive clean gearbox (that is a bit twitchy about finding smile inducing handling all in a that is well suited notwithstanding) to beginner riders and who are of a less gigantic persuasion my massive frame was more comfortable on it too!).

On top of that you get a looking fully faired with good quality materials, which looks a bike and not something the postman ride! Oh and I must mention there are two color schemes the pearl white which was the one and photographed and a matte black and one which looks (in my not so humble like a Rocket-powered Stealth-Cheetah!

If you are in the market for a learner bike, forgoing the second hand available and take the Roadwin for a on the road. dare I say it, it really “win”.
