    1. Low-maintenance engine - 4 liters lang ang gagamitin na oil at 200 petots below ang mga replacement filters unlike sa Revo and Adventures.
    2. High Ground Clearance - swabe sa baha
    3. Very efficient fuel consumption
    4. Sturdy suspension parts.

    CONS:
    1. Puny front wheel bearing - Mabilis masira dahil masyadong maliit para sa XTRM. Halos kasing laki lang ng front bearing ng Kia Pride. :D
    2. Weak brakes - I'm not sure if the Michelin LTX tires make it worst, but some non-AT tires will improve its braking-grip capability or use a high-end Brake pads.
    3. Weak and lousy door hinges.
    4. Vintage Look. :D
    Thanks for the info sir, practically the reasons why I chose the XTRM. As for the brakes, they really are WEAK, lalo na kapag loaded, coming down from Antipolo, you'd really have to almost stand on the brakes for quick stops What type/brand of pads do you suggest?

    Nonetheless, still very satisfied with my XTRM so far, I also like the vintage, aggressive look.

    one more thing. weak point ng hilander ay yung rear window w/c is secured by only 3 nuts and bolts (sakin was forced open -naikot ung screw from the outside,bute nag alarm at walang nawala sa loob) . make sure u secure it with mighty bond para di mapwersa na maikot from the outside. and syempre use a dependable car alarm cgro nalang mas maigi

    Thanks for the tip bro, naisip ko nga rin na pwedeng buksan yung rear window, buti nabanggit mo yung sa iyo. Hindi ba magkakaron ng mantsa yung window pag apply ng mighty bond? Thanks

    ang lalagyan mightybond pre yung screw lang para di mapwersa ng ikot sa labas, not the window itself pre. ingat ingat. ako nagpapalit ng alarm kahapon ng maayos na klase para sure. kung wala naman tayo balak idispatsa rides natin might as well take good care of it
