Moenie Schalk! Jy gaan jammer wees. Die TVS is die enigste Indiese fiets wat Puzey inbring en beter kwaliteit as die Chinese fietse wat die Puzey eintlik is. Die XTR300 is eintlik Loncin. Ons het een hier by ons in die workshop wat op grondpad gebruik op die plaas en hy is f^R%$ed.

As much as I believe in supporting local.....I think Puzey is being deliberately misleading, if I am not mistaken the Puzeys that finished bronze ROA were the 300 2st with the TM motor and not the bike in the picture above.
If you want to do more than just live.....play a sport that requires two big balls!

From the spec sheet at the start of this thread, I'm surprised that no-one picked up that the bike has 17"wheels front and rear. The fact that it has a 17"front wheel would rule it out for technical off-road riding for me straight away.

The answer should be quite simple mate, it still is manufactured in China with Chinese quality of material (quality of the steel and rubber and plastic)
No matter how much they try to tell you it is under 'supervision or licence', it still is manufactured from their quality of materials

I've never owned one, but all the Chinese bikes appear to start rusting after only a few years. It seems the chrome job on most components are really thin and shoddy. Do yourself a favour and read up on chroming processes, and you'll see that all that sparkles is not gold.

The best advice for the type of riding you intend to do is a Jap plastic like a WR250

I once had the opportunity to ride something similar and then got back on a DR200.  That thing just felt like nothing is right on it.
My suggestion is to go test ride it in close proximity to testing a Jap 250 for comparison.
