Watching couple minutes from the first video I'm pretty much sure that it is as shitty as everything else izh makes :lol2:
50mph?! It's declared speed and probably can only be reached in ideal conditions. I think I'd need more even on some trails let alone the dirt roads . I bet it's heavy as a pregnant elephant and controls heavy and ineffective. Russians can't create anything worthy.. if only something with very narrow purpose. Like the bike that can be carried in a trunk of "Oka". Yes, it is a shit, but hey, you can put it in that other POS and drive it to the swamp and then pedal it around :lol2:
