PUZEY, AS DURABLE AS THE NAME SUGESTS?
« on: March 14, 2011, 06:03:07 pm »
No sarious. I'm looking at a scoot for the little one. Looking at the sub 20K market and the 250 motard looks cool.

Puzey got an interesting line up and Mike (the owner) designed a gr8 deal of the parts himself and he is from what I gather quite a capable engineer. He went overseas and found a company who can supply top grade products for his bikes and designed the rest himself. Unlike most other Chinese bike manufactures currently I am confident that you will get good value for money. Secondhand Japanese products can cost you dearly, ask me I been that route.  Most things we buy nowadays are manufactured under license in Ching Chong land....yes, even CRKT knives;lol  :thumleft:

Bob here in Gauteng the possibilities are endless and R20 K buys you quite a bit.
The super motard referred to is not a super motard as we know the WR,KTM,HUSKY,DRZ etc.
The 20 k refers to a road rideable bike/scoot and if possible a ready to ride "sm" for the laaitie,as we all know the real super motards are way above the 20k mark
I maintain buy a new xr125 for R13999.00  :drif:

Bikes around the 20K mark a plenty in gauteng,far more than in western cape. :thumleft:

ons Suid Afrikaners is mos maar n snaakse nasie.  :biggrin:

In Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Malawi, Angola, there's more small Chinese bikes than people and they all ride roads hardcore KTM'ers will think twice and thats with 2 or 3 on the bikes.
for every 10000 Chinese bikes there might be 1 Jap bike and then we, the small shitty little counrty on the South point of Africa compared to the China and the other African countries, who dont use these bikes run them down as rubbish. :imaposer:  :pot:

Go for Puzey, support Mike at least he made the effort to put up the money, build and design the bikes and you know you will get service from him.   :thumleft:

There's 4 on this pikipiki and this is the norm, and then they ride shitty dirt roads not tar.

I wouldn't say 1st.........China produces 17 million bikes, scooters p.a.!
Everyone said all the same negative thigs about Jap bikes when I bought my first Honda in 1960.

Go & visit Puzey Head Office (near Banbury Cross)  & see the bikes & talk to Mike himself
the STX200 is a brilliant little bike which is basically a DR 200 with different plastics ( made in same factory  - he says)  for about 17K brand new...
IMHO - brilliant value for money
He says he sells loads of them & never sees them again - they just go & go & go....

Michnus, are you on a Puzey? Thought not. Mike should maybe not have used his Surname. Not in SA. :imaposer:

if I do Africa again this will be on my list of bikes. Can be repaired anywhere and is cheap to use. Or a bike with no bloody waterpump and chain drive amd must have tubeless tyres.
Mayne he could have called it something different. :-)
