MOTORRAD conclusion on the Nexo Fiberglas Sport

More would have been possible for the Nexo Fiberglas Sport, but rather moderate shock absorption values ​​and the relatively high weight cost decisive points that make up the otherwise well-deserved judgment “Good” absence. The basis is right, and that “Odds and ends” (Chin strap, pinlock) can be corrected with a new edition.

MOTORRAD verdict: satisfactory
