The 2009 United Motors V2S is a mid-weight sport bike that offers plenty of fun on the track, while remaining street legal for commutes. It comes in three versions: V2S 250, 250R, and 650R, with the number in each version referring to the engine's displacement. The 650R, therefore, has a greater displacement than the other versions. This allows the buyer to choose how much power he or she wants in a bike. The 250 versions offer 26 horsepower, while the V2S 650 offers a considerably greater 76.5 hp.
The three versions of the United Motors V2S also differ by transmission. The 2009 United Motors V2S 250 and 250R have five-speed manual transmissions, and the V2S 650R has a six-speed transmission. This lets the engine generate more power without experiencing excessive stress. It also gives the driver a more subtle command over the bike.
The larger engine and transmission add nearly 100 pounds to the 650R. While the smaller 250 and 250R versions weigh a mere 375 pounds, the 650R weighs in at 460 pounds.
Differences between the United Motors V2S 250 and 250R are subtle. The 2009 V2S 250, for instance, comes with 110/70 R17 54H front tires, and 150/70 R17 69H back tires. The 250R has 120/60 R17 55W front tires, and 160/60 R17 69W back tires that offer a little more traction on the road. That's helpful for amateur racers who enjoy taking their bikes out for friendly competitions without taking the outcome too seriously. Those who really want to win races will obviously opt for the more powerful, faster 650, instead of bothering with the 250R's minor improvements over the 250.
United Motors obviously designed the 2009 V2S 650R to attract racing fans. Its powerful engine and low profile will help it to hug tight turns when amongst a pack of speeding bikes. The smaller V2Ss, however, can hold their own. They might not have as much power as the 650R, but they offer plenty of horsepower for such lightweight bikes. All versions have sporty designs that tell other drivers on the road to look out. With a simple twist of the wrist, these bikes can take off, leaving larger vehicles in a trail of exhaust.
The 2009 V2S shows that United Motors knows how to design a motorcycle that, with some minor adjustments, can meet the needs of nearly anyone interested in fast bikes. By separating the motorcycle into three classes, United Motors creates distinctions between street performance and track performance, without letting those differences affect the bike's aesthetics. All three versions look very cool. The deciding factor, therefore, is how much power buyers want in their vehicles, not how they want to look on the road.
