of the 3 models n for newbie riders.

typical sillyporeans will pick TA200.

there r plentiful of 2nd hand ta200 bikes.

u can find cheap deals n many shops want to get rid-off.

cheap n good, it's all depends on maintenances.

some r problems free, some r problematic.

 

korean product r not highly valued.

more expensive but u can find some cheap 2nd hand bikes.

 

buy the bike u like most n not wat others like.

 

roadwin is single piston, 4-valve, 4-strokes engine.

it's engine is either 125cc or 140cc (not 150).

 

comet 125cc is v-twin engine.

v-twin engine r more complex n difficult to troubleshoot.

 

comet has got better hp than rw, but lesser hp than TA200.

i like rw more than others, tat's why i'm riding rw.

v-twin have more low~mid rpm torque than single.

basically factory tune the bike lean in-order to meet environment standards.

need to do carb tuning to bring up to it's optimum.

single piston is easy to do carb tune-up.

v-twin r complex, really needs some knowledge n do lots of trial n errors on carb settings.

air-cool v-twin, the rear cylinder tense to be hotter than the front due to heat flow backwards.

i read b4 the tuning of a air-cool v-twin have to be slightly unbalance in-order to achieve it's optimum.

if i'm not wrong the rear have to be richer than the front, rich runs cooler than lean.

best v-twin r water-cool type coz cooling is more much even.

u can't find a good mech except yourself.

most mech in sillypore r backyard type meaning they don't up-keep with technologies, most r monkey see monkey do type.

rarely they give good advise or do a good job unless they rode the same bike u have.

even big 4 agents like honda, kawasaki, suzuki n yamaha theirs mech r in general term not good, basic service is ok but if u need to boost or improve performance, they out of the lead.

for all my previous bikes, even rw i need to do trial n error to tune-up to it's optimum performance.

it's butt dyno n FC tat i can monitor when it reach it's optimum.

best advise is try to do it yourself instead of depending on local mech.

I previously had Yamaha breeze 150 and Honda vt250. Both were v-twins. The breeze vibrates so i change to smaller (2 teeth lesser) rear sprocket so lesser rpm at each gear to make it much smoother. Yet I don't need to play around much with the gears when i slow down, as it incredibly pull easily at the higher gears.

 

VT250's 90 degrees v-twin is naturally smooth with lots of beautiful torque!
