2009 QLINK Sapero Review

Intro

QLINK introduced its Sapero 250 custom cruiser motorcycle in 2006, but discontinued it just a few years later when it dropped CF Moto as its manufacturer in China. One review described the Sapero as ""a cruiser in sport bike clothes. Though fared like a sport bike, it has forward controls, cruiser style seating, and swept handlebars."" Riders say the Sapero 250 is great for cruising around town and non-freeway highway driving, but they do not feel it is fast enough to keep up with other vehicles on the freeway, even though it is a 250. It has a single cylinder, four-stroke engine that puts out 18 hp. It comes with an electric start and standard kick-stand.

The Sapero 250 has a lot of bells and whistles for an inexpensive cruiser. The two-piece seat is leather with a backrest for the passenger. The dash has digital instrumentation, including a clock, gauge, speedometer, odometer, and temperature warning gauge. Dash storage is standard with small, lockable under-seat storage. The Sapero 250 also comes with a radio and cassette player, and two speakers. The cruiser is available in red, blue, or silver.
