I think it’s time. Time to say by to my current bike and change it for something newer.
My beloved Suzuki GS550 – 2004 will look now for a new owner. We had a lot of amazing adventures over the past 2 years but it’s time to say bye 😦
It started to require a bit of extra work, supsension needs a rebuid, carborator could use a tune and some extra work here and there will be needed.
The issue is that without a garage it doesn’t really make sense for me to do it. I cannot do it myself and Suzuki Garage here in Malta is just a dissaster. I was trying ot make an appointemnt to take care of those things twice but so far – appointment is made – and than nothing happends, no parts, no technician. just crappy service.
So I think it’s better if she finds a new home…… and I’m thinking of ……
Choice went to VOGE 300DS or 300AC – 2021 models – They’re cheap and I like how they look.
I’m going to test drive it on Wednesday and maybe do a part exchange on the suzuki with a dealer.
The thing is that if all goes well with goverment grants I can have this one for less than 2000 euro which is a bargain.
I know it is a new brand, Chinease motorcycle and so on. However Loncin brand has good history and experiance making quality engines. In the end they produced BMW Motorcycle engines for few decades.
It might lack power with only 28Hp but do I reallly need more here in Malta. I don’t really think so.
All other bits and pieces looks relativelly impresive to. WIth NISIN Breakes, BOSH Electronics KBY susspension, LED Lights, LCD screen, USB Port and few more. Could it really be a Bargain I’m looking for?
I’m really tempted to switch to on of those bikes. Leaning more over 300DS than AC but will see after test drive.
I’m just hoping the 28Hp will not feeel underpowered. Especially in the long trip. I know this won’t fly in the highway but as long as It’s relativelly comfortable I should be fine. Could be a good start.
Let’s see what happends and I will keep you all posted.
P.S. – quick follow up – I went with something different 🙂
