We glanced at it and to be honest whilst water has been going under the bridge since it was first introduced it is an out dated bike. New monos are not my thing but it is out dated and probably was before the first was bolted together. So 40 are sold and they hope for 400 sales (of the same model) I take my hat off to them if they reach 100 in 5 years. :popcorn:

PS. I wonder if they looked at the Jotagas?? That is a new bike :rolleyes:

Well…

Have to say that the Greeves is one of the bikes that makes me wonder the most.

When seeing the bike, I did have the same reaction as the most of you – “what a eye turd” (pardon my English – being around Americans to mutch). The bike looks like it is taken from the 90’teens, a looks like a clumsy Montesa 315… Sorry…
But, after trying the Bike at a testday, I have to say that it runs pretty good. It feels very light, and the engine is responsive. The balance in the bike is up there with a Sherco or Beta – my opinion.
Is it worth the money? – Not up to me… just want to say the bike isn’t that bad (and it is nice to have a bike that is made by a Brit) :D


But Andy… not to start an argument – but what is new wtih the Jotagas model?
