A review of a bike when it's brand new isn't the best indicator of how a bike might last. 

I've seen 3-4 of these things in my time working here and 2 of them were kept dirty between rides, oil changed hardly ever - they had rust gathering almost everywhere. But I also have a customer that daily rides one  (has about 15,000 KM) and it's still in pretty mint condition. We've had to replace a couple switches over time but thats about it. 

TL;DR - if you're buying one make sure it's been looked after or don't bother. 

Edit: Lol should have read that more indepth. His 6,000KM review is pretty accurate.

Very very very similar league when it comes to the small 150's. Probably built in factories next door to each other. 

Probably built in the same one even haha

*everyone who was there goes outside to check their bikes for damage.......

I gave mine a bit of a look over when I unloaded it. It had a small list of problems; 

-broke the bottom of my leg shield 

-both my headlight and tail light don’t work anymore 

-headlight came loose 

-legshield mount bolt unwound itself and fell off 

-air filter split and fell off 

-right foot peg rubber is toast 

and the best one yet; 

my front wheel nearly fell off cause the axle but unwound itself and I rode about 30km with a front wheel flopping around in my forks

I wonder where I can buy a new spoke?

Fitment wont be an issue.  17" tyres are a lot easier to get off than 10". And while the wheels out, I'll replace the cush drive too. (And maybe inspect the brake shoes. I dunno of they're a bit shagged, or just naturally a bit shit.  The Dio pulls up on a dime by comparison.

Plus the old boy has had a lot of practised straightening bent bicycle wheels for me and my bro. (Being a bit hard on the gear seems to run in our family)
