Good Review. Is it jumps when shifts gears?
I have driven RE2 (don't remember the model name- its was rear engine) at school time and i really enjoyed the original noise from the silencer

Once we were transporting a Tyre mould and the vehicle was literally crying during the uphill journey and stopped inbetween and said sorry i cant go further !

To overcome this i turned vehicle to the opposite direction and put the reverse gear.. and it safely taken us to the hill top.

I still remember the use of wiper with my hands during monsoon

1, I think if you engage the reverse gear, you can drive in all the four gears. (Hope it is clear enough). Like engaging the reverse gear simply flips something and the output drive spins in the opposite direction.

2. All those complaints about fit and fihish - you ought to look into what the competition is / was when the RE was launched. It was the FE (front engine) rick from a company named Bajaj.

The only other manufacturer was API or scoters india or somesuch. Their provided a "chassis", and a steel body had to built on it - means the vehicle was very heavy, and center of gravity was high. And those made a racket from day.

Both FE and RE bajajs had more engine power than the API / SCI rick.

We actually owned one - the API one. ;-P Do not know the details, coz. I was a tiny tot then. Have read the owner's manual though. Only thing I remember is that the head lamps had a "throw" of 7M in high beam and 3 M in low beam.
