@ 9500 rpm while the

@ 9500 rpm while the torque figure is 30 Nm at 7500 rpm. The bike weighs in at 157 kg and the tank holds 15 litres of fuel. The engine pulls strongly and even though this bike only had 39 km on the clock when I got it, it did not feel tight and unwilling to move. The performance is on par with other single-cylinder bikes in this class. With the short suspension travel at the back, you will notice bumps in the road. Once out on the highway the little Zontes had no problem maintaining highway speeds. There is no wind protection, but that is the nature of cruisers. For me personally, Zontes have knocked it out of the park with the 310-V. It looks cool and the fit and finish is very good. The bike will make its way into showrooms soon, so if you are in the market for a commuter, you must add this bike to your test-ride list. I loved it!
