The marketed as an underbone, the Raider looks & feels more lượt thích a small sport xe đạp. The weight is the first thing the reminds you of this. Nonetheless it’s still much lighter than a sport bike with the tank in front. The narrow seat và low mounted handlebars dictate a slightly leaned forward position.
