Lifan Glint 100 Rating
Lifan Glint 100 is a decent looking standard bike which would be selected by middle aged people mainly at the first time. But, though who has few budget for the bike can purchase it without hesitation. The price is no doubt within the range. However, it is more comfortable than expected. Besides, due to large fuel tank capacity and better fuel efficiency, it will provide secured riding in long tour. However, combination of disc and drum brakes, it’s handling is also good. Though, resale value is not sufficient but considering the current market price, it’s seems alright.
