Bite Tests

Bite Test: 2019 Kawasaki Vulcan S

After my ‘Taste Test’ on the 2018 Vulcan S the past year, I got a chance of riding this bike in a parking lot!

The Vulcan S is a very good entry-level cruiser, it’s one of the first motorcycles that have the ERGO-fit custom fitting system for riders. And it’s a bargain among its peers.

So, how does it handle while dodging cones? Is the bike too big or awkward for gymkhana duties!?

I’m curious to find out how a forward-controlled motorcycle handles the tricky stuff like in the parking lot! It will be a very fun affair!

Bite Tests

Bite Test: 2020 Bajaj Rouser 200NS

Also known as the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 (Carburated, non-ABS model) or Kawasaki Rouser 200NS in the Philippines.

This 200cc class ‘backbone’ naked bike is in a tough arena between the mainstream 150cc and the globally-recognized 250cc classes! And since this will be my first time to ride a naked bike like this! Plus this is my first time on a Bajaj bike.

And take note, the KTM Duke/RC 125/200/250/390 are built in cooperation with Bajaj, and lately with Triumph Motorcycles!

How will I feel riding an oddball 200cc motorcycle? This will be a different experience altogether!

I would love to test this bike further on a ‘Taste Test’ format at least.
