From the outset, the Mash Five Hundred seems to invite you to approach. She is pretty and simple, and vice versa. His line neo retro, reminiscent of a bunch of 70/80 models, is elegant. Certainly, the integration of Siemens injection is not as neat as a Triumph Bonneville who hides behind false carburetors, but at this price, you can not ask the impossible.
The template is also very relevant: 2130 mm long, for 151 kg dry and 780 mm of seat height. In fact, with my little meter seventy, I put your feet flat on both sides. And the engine off maneuvers such a light bike is simply a treat. Fortunately, by the way, given its capacity. Then you would start with a choice, a kick not really easy to operate or otherwise more comfortable electric starter.
In 2015 French manufacturer Mash Motors has just unveiled a limited edition version of its Five Hundred retro bike. It’s called the Mash Von Dutch and it’s a fresh approach to a bike known for its neo-retro looks.
