….which has completely blown my expectations. As a 125cc Suzuki engine powered agile little bike it has an incredibly low 91 cm height seat, smooth power delivery and 100 mile range. It’s an absolute bundle of fun. Being honest, I didn’t think I’d fall for the Blade X but having taken it out on the Wiltshire lanes for five hours today I think it’s an absolute winner of a first bike for anyone wanting to get some mud on them and pop around town. It withstands drops with out any complaints, the weight is low and manoeuvrable giving confidence, and it’s small capacity means it’s highly forgiving (no unexpected back flips like some of the more mainstream enduro bikes). Confidence builder 100%!
It’s not going to be for everyone, especially those on the tall side, but for someone starting out and wanting a bike to develop on, even with ‘L’ plates…it’s perfect. And from only £2399 new. Only thing I’d say is the peg ground clearance was a little on the low side for some of Wiltshire’s charming ruts and I’d definitely want to put some better rubber on.
Who’s ridden one or even heard of Sinnis? I never like to mock anything until I’ve tried it, hence taking one out for a play. OK…so I’m not going to rock up at a Hard enduro on one but that’s not what it’s for!
If you’re new to my page – it’s more than just dirt bike riding and racing, I’m on a mission to prove that nothing is impossible if you want it bad enough. See more about my story plus read about my life changing accident, which started it all.
