Power

I love my 2018 Tempest. I've covered 1,500 miles on her so far and she’s never missed a beat, although I do wish it had a little more power as struggles with the hills around here in the north of Scotland (more hills than flats). I use it for seeing my child, a few runs to the beach and chipper.

It makes a good city commuter but it's not so good in the open countryside here in Scotland as there's not quite enough power to get up most of the hills.

Styling

Well what can I say, she’s a beautiful bike that sounds great and gets a lot of attention any place I go. She handles great in the dry but the standard tyres are slippery in the wet and I've had the back come out a few times.

Economy

It's great on fuel and I’m currently getting about 400 miles to a tank give or take. The USB port has come in handy for charging the phone out and about but can cause the bike to cut out.

To Sum Up

The bike is comfortable to ride. I’m 5”11 and 13/14 stone and she pulls me fine. One thing I don’t like about the bike is that you can’t fit a top box or panniers on her. You can get a luggage rack although it doesn’t look that big.

All in all she’s a good wee bike and I'm looking forward to more adventures on her.
