It feels good (and nostalgic) to be back at SG Bikes Forum after 2 years of break.. And after 4 years of Phantom, decided to change to Twister 10 mths ago..

 

My feedback based on my experiences with it so far:

FC: 30km/l

Machine Price + COE (10 mths ago): Abt 8k

Country of Make: Brazil

For exact specs, pls do a google search on it.

 

My take: Agreed with some bike mag reviews that this bike is durable and sturdy, yet nimble. The real power and torque kicks in when in lower gears like 1st and 2nd only, but it starts to lose its "push" especially in 4th gear and above.. To me personally, it's like a small bro to S4 and minus the h-vtec haha.. Though it will of coz eat bigger bikes dust, still it wun be far off behind as it can keep up relatively fast oso.. Meantime, I'm looking around shops for "mods" (legal) for my twister.. Quite hard to find accessories and enhancements for this bike, as this model is not popular in SG and most distributors do not bring in accessories for this bike, unlike the ever-popular S4.. One last thing for my personal views only: It's definately less theft-prone than a S4, parts not as ex as S4 and overall looks also not so eye-catching.. Thus, if there's a twister and a S4 parked side-by-side, and if I'm a robber, chances are very high than i will "kope" the S4 :-)

Which model of the phantom yourode previously? 150 or 200?

How does it compare to a twister in terms of handing and pickup?

Previously I'm riding a 4-stroke phantom, not 2-stroke. In terms of pickup, of coz Twister will thumbs up over phantom. I've yet to see a phantom (even a 2-stroke version) overtake me at traffic light if i choose to full throttle. For handling, twister is somewhat comparable to S4. You can "cup" corners pretty low, though have to be careful becoz stock tyres are not as gripping as S4.

 

Another bro asked me wat's the top speed of twister on straight road, is the eo 1 bottle every servicing, and fc around 30km/l? Based on my own experiences so far, the highest I can hit is 140km/hr. I'm sure can hit higher than that based on what i see at youtube. eo is 1 1/4 bottles for every servicing. and yes, fc is around 30km/l (and this is even after frequent hard throttle).

Thanks. Wht about the drum brakes behind? i think the twister lacks in the braking dept cos the rear is a drum brake. Will tend to be prone to sqeaking noise. correct me if i wrong

Front's using Disc whereas rear's using drum. So far so good for the braking, though I haven't got the chance to do a e-brake before (thank God for that!!)

 

For those of you wanting to see how it looks with a box behind, go to google images and search for some pics. I've checked and did come across a few of those pics showing the bike with a box.

 

For myself, my bike comes with a 42L box when I bought it a year ago. For those of you wanting to put 2 helmets in comfortably, I would suggest you get a 45L one instead.

Just went to replace headlight bulb for my twister at MotoWorld. Since there already, might as well do some shopping. Realised that there are few local motordiams that provides aftermarket products/mods to this bike, which well, I can understand since this bike's not popular locally. Anyone know of any shops? Legal modifications that is...
