We first tested this engine in the Zontes M310 and we already like it, it’s now grown a bit to 349 cc, getting power up to 36,7 cv And let me remind you that it already outperforms its rivals between 300 and 400 cc. If we compare With range reference, the piston measures the same as the Honda’s (77 mm in diameter) but with a longer stroke (74.9 vs 70.8 mm) so it has a higher displacement, although it reaches its greatest power at lower revs (7000 rpm). reaches. Compared to the 29cv on Honda’s 7500 (which in turn uses a single camshaft, ie it’s SOHC compared to the Zontes DOHC). electronically, it is AbdomenTraction control and two engine modes (Sport and Eco) although I didn’t notice any difference(?) between them.
Referring to the circle paparts mentioned, it shares components with the other Zontes 350, along with a “short” chassis version of the M350 (the D350 is longer). Hence it mounts 15a -inch front wheel (with 120/70) and 14-inch rear (140/70 tytire 268mm front disc (with raa dial caliper) a,nd 265mm rear. weight 176 kg and a fuel tank of 12 liters, which explains the impossibility of having a flat platform (separate chassis). The seat is 760mm from the ground and although the scooter is somewhat wide where the feet will go to find the ground if you’re not tall, handling safely at sta andstill or atw speeds isn’t too inconvenient.
As Zontes has accustomed us, this model is not lacking despite its price afbeing fordable, From Description Like adjustable brake levers, kickstands and stands, bent metal wheel valves (why don’t all motorcycles and scooters have that!)… even the proximity key (which gave me a bit of trouble), pineapple lights or lights full led,
And of course TFT screen is In color, always with multiple presentations of proper design (with tire pressure and temperature information) and with the useful “mirror” option to reflect the screen of our mobile once connected (Bluetooth). Both glove compartment Front ports allow for charging (USB and USB-C sockets). The Difference Something proper is under the seat (it fits an integral face) and its light comes on with a given contact (so it doesn’t drain the battery if it goes bad, something common…).
Some things I have been able to test this scooter with others Deeper What we could or would sometimes do with the trials bike: urban and inter-city traffic, sure, but also winding roads and some medium-distance getaways on the highway. As I mentioned above, what caught my attention the most is the Motor: not only for its softness (it goes very Till then but for thitsenefitswith an excellent mid-range throttle a,nd a wonderful tip (be careful not to lose points or screw up on control), and a consumption… impossible?
I didn’t believe what the on-board computer told me and I measured it twice (you know, absolute and partial zero). Well, at high speeds (practically what I gave and the conditions allowed me) it was about 3.5 liters per 100 km, a phenomenal figure for a 350 that passes “one hundred miles per hour” on the flat. it’s not hard to get around 3 liters which offers an autonomy of at least 400 km …
Geometry The chassis is sharp and the scooter is very nimble and agile, but a bit nervous on fast roads (where it can go pretty fast). Some stiff suspension doesn’t help either. mention for Tire Origins (Chinese CST) that were under suspicion, but with a test session Pressure It confirmed what I had suspected in each of Jontes’ tests without time to correct it (and it’s published): They’re very swollen, especially the front, giving off a precarious and insecure feeling. I left them 2.1/2.2 forward and 2.5 backward when cold (the display indication is not very accurate by the way). So Zontes allowed us to draw a very confident picture… but another problem came up: rubs off easily With a curved floor, especially on the right (exit and easel). Rear spring stiffening (complicated without tools in basic equipment) is improved but gets even more jittery in sharper areas.
All these explanations you can expect in the proof of a sport motorcycle, not as in “a Chinese scooter”… but that the Zontes offers the features and mannerisms to have fun at its controls, beyond being a practical (and affordable) vehicle. I was eager to try it with Screen The “longer” (the test unit had the one you see “sporty” mounted) although the shorter one already diverted the air for my 1.83m (the other one would have been better, I think), and the Zontes too Give A previous trunk that I didn’t test (but would be welcome to). If after recently testing the “GT” D350 I recommend it as a “master buy,” I can’t say less about this more compact and nimble E350 4787 euro: Praise.
With this simple rear lever lock, we could park safely on a slope, or stop for a moment on a ramp. Why don’t all scooters have this? It’s easy and cheap.
Again the same question: why not all motorcycles and scooters have them? In addition to being metallic, they facilitate the important task of checking pressures.
Same again! Why don’t they have all the scooters? The “mold” ones in the fairing often forced the feet of the passengers.
House brands for other Zontes: We adjust the screen with a button, “low” (urban) or “high” (fast roads), hen it protects unless you’re tall. They give a more transparent and longer and wider (the better).
I won’t repeat it, will I? But this is something that all motorcycles should have so that we can adjust the distance of our hands properly and stay safe.
Tall and adequately padded, there is some reasonable space underneath for the rider and passenger, but the scooter’s dimensions are what they are (compact).
The box is a color TFT screen with perfect visibility and with different styles and “reflection” fufunctionsf our mobile.
We have two glove compartments with USB (two) and good capacity. The plastic finish of its closure and handlebar are the only things that don’t score well on this scooter.
