■It can be seen from the specifications table


Too there is no material also, there is no record of the Toka highest speed was many kilometers.
So let’s slowly imagine also seen in the specifications table.

It can be seen for the time being is that you are not only output 3PS in the 150cc. Moreover, quite a low-speed setting I 3,800rpm.
And it will also be concerned about that compression is only 5.0.

It might be nonsense, but you try compared Honda PCX150 and is the current 150cc.
Output is 14PS / 8,500rpm, compression is 10.6. I There is a world of difference. Silver Pigeon C21 vehicle weight is break even and the PCX150 129kg.

N Well, 3PS is 3PS So, I think you mean the acceleration of the turnip average?
By all means it is what I want to worship that ran with the naked eye!
Ze … I want to ride if possible
