Pros

Sweet growly playful character (with exhaust mods)
Sounds good at any speed(see above)
Tips into the corners like a dream
Pulls out of corners like a wet one.
Smooth gearbox
Strong motor.
Likes to play.
Rock solid mechanicals.
Stable and easy to ride
Looks good
Fast - in the mountains the Bonny can hold its own against " faster " bikes surprisingly well.


Cons
Cheap suspension
Weak indicator lights
40 lbs too heavy ( like me)
Attracts old dudes ( Like me)
