Cheap, reliable and great fun - the best toy I have ever had
Clutch exploded, ripping through the bell housing - my fault as I was trying to wheel spin it with a passenger. Replaced it and drove sensibly, and it's never been a problem again.
Great performance and good handling, but bucks around on bumpy roads and needs extreme care in the wet.
Ability to change direction in 'S' bends is amazing, and nothing much will keep up with you.
Out cornered every bike on Mad Sunday at the TT, but got annihilated on the straights (as you'd expect).
Excellent acceleration up to 85mph, and 3 or 4 cars can be overtaken at a time. Will do about 125mph flat out, but it gets twitchy past about 110mph.
Open cockpit makes leaving it unattended risky.
The styling attracts lots of attention - women are oblivious to it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
