So, still a complete 'no go', do we think? The Mrs needs something with a bit more poke than the CB125E, but the exchequer is still checkered, so we're looking cheap. For something 250-750, relatively new and low km, the Hyos are all over Bikesales. My impression was that there were some pretty serious teething issues when they started in Oz around 2005. Have they got better, or stayed about the same? For $2.5k it's probably worth the punt, and if it dies we can put a match to it by the side of the road and walk away.
