We bought TWO of these and both had severe reliability issues. The dealership was wonderful but getting parts was a pain. The electrical system on both bikes was a recurring issue. The bikes were the same, only differed in color yet were pieced together with different parts, screws etc. The bikes spent more time in the service department of the dealership than on the road. When we purchased them, there were many extras that attracted us. The floor boards, heel-toe shifter and overall look of the bike was nice. However, a main requirement of a bike is that it actually runs and these did not most of the time. I wish they'd been different. I even felt a little guilty when I sold them to people but I was definitely glad to be rid of them.

My friend I ride with rides a gsxr 600 and my UM V2S 250R keeps right up with him. The bike is a real head turner and I get all kinds of questions that I love to answer. When I upgrade it will definitly be with another United Motors bike. You can't beat the price for the bike you get and the dealer was great.

Well I have had this bike a little over 2 months now have put 1400 miles on it. The only issue I had was within the first week. I had a screw that was not properly screwed in on the mirror. Dealership fixed promptly and everything else had been great. Can't say enough about the great dealership and the bike has been more reliable than my 2007 yamaha I traded in for it. When I do upgrade next, I will be sticking with hyosung/um brand. The bike has definitely given me more confidence in my riding and yes, I have gotten above 100mph.

I had a hard time finding reviews of this bike, so I want to do my part to get some publicity out there. This is my first scooter or motorcycle, so I don't have much to compare it to, but here are my impressions. I've had my Matrix II-170 for just over a month now and I've loved every minute. I find every excuse that I can to take it for a ride. It's been the perfect bike for my commute, which is about 10 miles on surface streets. I'm not the smallest person and I've been averaging around 65 mpg and I have had it up to just over 60 mph, though I try to keep it closer to 50. It accelerates well, so I don't have other traffic waiting on me and I have no problems braking in a hurry. You've gotta love those disc brakes. I ride it a little hard: quick accelerations and higher cruising speeds. It's been very reliable, but it does seem a bit sluggish to start on some cooler mornings. It makes some strange noises when accelerating hard or if you let off the throttle quickly, but I don't think its anything to worry about. I think it's the CVT trying to keep up and it might just need some adjustment. I'm just going make sure I keep to the maintenance schedule. I love how much I can fit under the seat. It easily holds my helmet (HJC CL-33, large). I've been looking around at my options for extra storage and have decided that I'll probably add a top case, if I can find one that will fit my laptop (in a proper case of course). I may also try my hand at designing some side racks to hold some hard side cases, but we'll see.

This is the 1st motorcycle I have ever owned. I wanted a 250cc because I felt that I was not ready for something to powerful. I almost ended up with the Ninja250R, but then I saw the UM250 and the looks is what grabbed my attention. So I did my research and finally made up my mind and went for it. I bought the bike, wow! I've owned the bike for one year this month and till this day I have not had any problems with it at all. The bike has a lot of power to it; I was surprised for only a 250cc. I have taken it on the freeway and cruised at 75mph with no problem. Also, my girlfriend has ridden with me on the back seat and again no problems. She loved it. The best part about my bike is the gas mileage. I get 72 miles to the gallon; realistically it's about 50-60 miles in the city. I live in San Francisco and I'll tell you the bike has power for it to go up these hills with no problems. I love it.

After getting sucked dry by the gas companies, I took the plunge and went for efficiency, and a cool style. Besides dealing with the Oklahoma DMV, my experience has been awesome with the bike! It gets lots of looks and questions from curious people who cannot believe it's only a 250. "Are you sure?one guy asked. I filled up a week ago and am just now on 1/2 a tank. The ride is supremely soft and smooth. The machine has a slightly annoying roar about it, but performs great. When you need it to be there, it's there. It's absolutely perfect for around town! At 370 lbs dry, it can go on the highway too. Every rider you meet waves!
