Verdict

Weight

The chance of snaking is small even at higher speeds.

Flat roads

The performances of the engine of this outfit are in general sufficient. Under favourable conditions on motorways it is possible to drive with 60 mph in the 5th gear, by giving the engine nearly full throttle. In that case the engine runs approximately 1900 rpm. For example, in a headwind or a crossover, downshift to the 4th gear. The engine runs approximately 2400 rpm.

Mountains

On most motorways inclines (1:20) driving is easily possible in the 3th gear with 50 mph and even full throttle with 58 mph. Hill starts are possible even on steep slopes up to 15%, if the front wheels have sufficient traction. While driving the engine has enough power to drive on every normal road.
