It is also fitted with a slipper clutch and motorcyclists now have the option for an ABS. But what's really amazing about it is the 379 pound curb weight and the engine's 13,000 redline.

Which bike?

However, motorcycles and mopeds are not for everyone. Space and passenger is very limited and riders are susceptible to a lot more danger from harsh weather, unmaintained roads and other motorist's mistakes.

Just take the precautions like wearing protective gears and helmet and be as visible as possible.
