The long awaited Phoenix has arrived. Stay tuned for our full review ETA Monday

Performance
-Estimated Speed-55mph

For those of you who know your engines will recognize that this is a hopped up version of the old honda trailbike motor which has a good parts availability and tons of upgrades. As of now the best bang for the buck you can do to this motor is a cdi box, rejetting it, adding a diff plug, and if you want to go farther, a big bore kit. You must understand that this has nothing to do with top speed and also top speed is not a good indicator of performance as you can gear it to go 100 if you want however you will have no bottom end. With the cdi upgrade and some carb tuning we recomend you go up one tooth on the front sprocket which will keep your acceleration the same but give you more top end. For those that want to get tons of performance out of this get the 140 big bore kit, cause not only are you upping the displacement but you are increasing the compression ratio and will gain about 30% more horsepower and can probably go up 2 teeth on the front sprocket and get this thing going around 75mph.

On monday we will continue the review and give more specs on this as of now this is the nicest, highest quality sport bike we have seen come out of china, so get yours while you can we will not have anymore till the spring time.

IF you do have questions on this bike or any other bike please post it in the sportbikes-general section

The mirrors make me think- jackalope.

I've always kind of wanted an apprilla rs 50 or 125 to play with but they cost as much as a nice used bike.

Interesting find.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
