First released in 2006, the V2C helped United Motors gain importance amongst motorcycle enthusiasts who prefer cruising the highways, instead of burning rubber on the race track. The 2009 United Motors V2C comes in three versions: 250T, 650S, and 650T. The 250T and 650S are both classified as cruisers, while the 650T reaches touring status. Regardless, they all offer attractive features that make them suitable choices for different buyers.
The 2009 United Motors V2C 250T is the smallest of the three bikes. It has a 26-horsepower engine that, combined with its five-speed manual transmission and light 370 pounds, offers impressive speed. It also gets 113 mpg, which will appeal to anyone who wants to save money at the pump. The inverted fork front suspension on the United Motors V2C offers a smooth ride for a light vehicle. Its 27.5-inch seat height and 59-inch wheel base make it comfortable to drive, and easy to control.
Both of the United Motors V2C 650 versions have larger engines that pump out 70 horsepower, which is more than double what the 250T can offer. It also has a wider wheelbase (65.4 inches) and heavier weight (498 pounds). While the bikes churn out considerably more power, making them suitable for riders who enjoy finding empty highways where they can reach high speeds without getting pulled over or having accidents, this option comes at a price. Double the power means about half the fuel efficiency, and these versions get 64 mpg combined. That's not bad for a bike with so much raw power, but it won't win many awards for riders who have a secret green thumb hidden inside their leather gloves.
The 2009 United Motors V2C has plenty of features to meet the needs of casual riders and motorcycle enthusiasts. Those who want to prepare for longer rides, or simply want to make their bikes look a little cooler, can add several accessories, including a windscreen, engine cover, sports carrier, and saddlebag. With 3.7-gallon and 4.2-gallong tanks, drivers can certainly prepare for long hauls. The 250T can ride for over 400 miles without refueling, while the heftier 650T and 650S can travel over 250 miles before stopping at a gas station. That's comparable to what the most fuel-efficient cars and trucks can offer with their big tanks.
All of these factors add up to one conclusion: United Motors intends the V2C to appeal to a wide audience that includes serious riders who want to settle in for a long trip down a dusty road, and weekend warriors who like to take their bikes out on pleasant afternoons. Either way, the 2009 V2C has an option that matches your needs.
