MOTORRAD conclusion on the Shark D-Skwal

The diligent collecting of points is worthwhile for the Shark D-Skwal: The Frenchman, made in Portugal, moves absolutely unobtrusively but very confidently to second place and is also at the forefront in terms of shock absorption. Quite a low noise level, good aerodynamics – a helmet for the brisk pace.

MOTORRAD verdict: good
