bike at a great price!

By Eron(Owner), Nov. 29, 2009

I my 2006 Avitar about a and a half ago. It had about miles on it at that time, and I $3,000 for it. I had read some about reliability that me some concern, but with the power, and presence of this pushing to buy, I went for it.

As I have n. ot been disappointed.

The is absolutely beautiful to look at. It is out to the max, though much of is plastic. Long and low, it has a muscle bike presence it. The tubular frame is reminiscent of a V-Rod. The three-spoke wheels are and hint at the sporting nature of cruiser.

Instrumentation is digital and to read (even in direct despite some contrary I have read elsewhere). The of a tach is notable, though not to gripe about in a bike of price. Beware the fuel means empty and there is no

Controls are intuitive and simple, pulled straight off of Suzuki’s cruiser line.

Whether at the bike in the driveway or watching ride it, the Avitar looks It’s wheelbase and length accommodate larger riders. weighing it at around 500 pounds, the is easy to manage for the beginner or a rider.

I am 5’9 with a 30 and I can flat foot the bike some bend in the knee. But it is cramped and feels just perfect on the road. The footpegs are up to 2, though I have not adjusted as yet.

The handlebars have a nice back angle making for upright cruising. The gas tank at the base, making it easy on the thighs. The seat is a thing of and is great for short rides and adequate for longer ones. Not too and not too spongy.

The passenger seat only be used for short as it provides no real support.

On up, the bike feels cold and I have the 2006 model the carb (the 2009 is injected), and the bike really to be choked on start up, no matter the temperature. Off the line, you have to the throttle way up to get any acceleration. Even in gear, speeds of less 15 mph threaten to kill the engine the clutch is held.

But after that, this comes alive. In 0-60 a Ninja 500 will beat the by a full second. By the end of the quarter-mile, are … even.

Beyond the Avitar pulls away authority. Going from 60 to 100 on the happens in a blink. All of this is of the 90-degree V-twin, which 70 bhp.

Most 1100 like a Honda Shadow, cannot compete with 650. The bike is just powerful, especially at the top end of the rpm range. The doesn’t really match the

Exhaust note is. subtle, a bit on the side. Downshifting at speed a nice snarl, but that’s the you’ll get. Larry makes a beautiful aftermarket that should be given consideration.

Shifting the 5-speed is smooth and easy, though are occasionally clunky. It’s a too easy to get stuck in neutral on the 1-2 under acceleration, but practice perfect. The friction zone on the is effective, if a bit on the short side.

Handling is magnificent thanks to oriented tires and inverted forks. Downshifting and braking corners does not create the side-effects you get on a sport bike. thing really makes you to carve the corners, and it is so remarkably that you are rewarded with turn.

At least every but the ones to the right. Unfortunately, hard right introduces you to a bolt on the underside of the exhaust touches down just to the footpeg. And bolts don’t back like footpegs, that your rear will leave the ground that bolt gives

That’s a rather nasty on such an enjoyable corner, so it. The left side has no such

The ride is pleasant and uneventful. are admirably soaked up, especially a little throttle roll. Not unsettles this bike. is very little vibration the handle bars or seat, long distance cruising a joy than a chore.

I rode it 240 and would have had no problem further.

Braking comes twin discs up front and a disc in the rear, unheard of in a at this price. However, the brakes seem remarkably and brake feel is cushy and Applying the rear brakes substantially reduced braking more so than on other

Working them together is and you really have to be inattentive to these brakes. Using the brake only, however, almost always result in your target.

Overall, I would rank a 4.5 out of 5, with the qualification that I do not sufficient time with it to long term reliability. But a recommend, especially for the ridiculously low Happy riding, and keep wheels to the pavement! Read Review
