Fit and finish is outstanding. The engine is very strong from idle to mid range and a bit weak on the top end. A somewhat smaller chassis than the KTM or GasGas which makes it nice for single track.
On the downside there isn't a lot of aftermarket support yet although Beta USA has quite a range of accessories.
E-start system much better than the KTM or Gas Gas. Overall I'm quite pleased with the bike.
