Mrs Bud 10/06/22 you are not going to pull that engine apart and put lots of new bits in it, are you?

I'm sure the top speed is impressive but I didn't build these bikes with top speed in mind. I've had the bike up to 65 MPH which is as fast as I care to go on a small bike like the Ruck. The Helix does 70 MPH, the Ruck is much lighter so I would guess 75 MPH+ is possible.
The stock Ruck motor was almost a danger due to it's lack of power. I wanted a bike that could accelerate fast, keep up with traffic and not lose speed when going up hills. The CN250 allows us to do all of those things.
Heck I would be happy with a nice helix. Every time a nice one pops up I end up missing it. The last one was half mile from home. They were pushing it out for sale and I was headed to the house with groceries for supper. I dropped them off and went back to look at it and it was already sold. White and spotless other than barn dust, 1500 miles and they sold it for 700 in 10 min on a back road. At least now I know what to do if I find one with a trashed body
