Commute and play
So you’re looking for a reasonably priced two-wheeler to get to work and back, and want a little fun on the side? Then check out MotoMia’s latest dual-purpose terra-strada TS250. Good looks aside, it’s sufficiently quick and nimble to handle any commute, and it even handles dirt roads with aplomb. Your money buys a willing engine that will get you away from traffic lights faster than most cars (okay, we’re not talking Porsche turbo here), upside down front shocks, mono-shock rear suspension, a bright LED tail light, electric- and kick start, a 10-litre fuel tank, and a fuel consumption of around 3 litres/100 km.
To top it off, you’ll enjoy a comfortable ride and easy handling, thanks in part to the low-slung seat that keeps the centre of gravity nice and low. As for stopping power, the twin-piston front disc and single-piston rear disc are more than adequate even when you’re riding with a passenger or carrying a load. Price: about R17 000.
