2017 ssr razkull

has anyone messed around with these? my girlfriend got one with the money her insurance gave her for her stolen sv. it's pretty cool. much better build quality than i would have expected from a chinese bike.
i ordered a vm22 mikuni carb, some jets, bar end mirrors, and frame sliders.

it's not a fast bike at all. i have never ridden a grom, but they seem to have more torque to do wheelies with. you crank the throttle on this, and the carb floods.
there's a guy on youtube who has gotten his up to 78mph, and i have ordered the same carb set up as his, so i'm pretty hopeful she can not be passed like a mailbox, and might even get some bugs in her teeth.
here she is, about to take off on her maiden voyage from the dealership

and one from a lunch run to a restaurant near my house


the razkull is so nimble. i'm going to have to get some cones and do some parking lot time trials with her

any 125cc people out in the montgomery area?

depending on how well the bike responds to carb fiddlin', and how well it holds up, i may be looking at this as a next bike.

I think that's the same bike KK has. Looks like a ton of fun. Take it to the Katy cart track

my nearest dealer was "playing around" on 105 west, about 5 min out of conroe. out the door, the bike was 2400ish. they didnt try to throw a lot of extra at us. we paid cash, they fixed a cracked dash glass, and it's all good. a very pleasant buying exp. hopefully if we need to use them for service or warrantee work it will still be pleasant.

I would have held out for a used Grom for that price, but SSR has come a long way quality wise and it may hold up.

Very nice! I've been eyeballing one of these for a year! Had no idea they had a dealer so close, AF1 racing in Austin couldn't order me one.

The great debate between the Grom and Razcull. Anything with a carb equals cheaper horsepower!

Going to take the wife up there in a couple weeks so she can sit on one. I've spec'd out a Ducati Monster graphics kit to rebadge it. That should confuse a few people!

Oh wow, I was going to call and secure one! My little Chinese scoot was a savior this weekend at COTA. However that left the wife walking so now she definitely wants something. Although this will put a wrench in my R3 plans...

I read that review a while back also and the consensus was it's not Grom but it's the best bang for the buck out there retailing for $1,400 less than a grom
