Hello everybody. I thought I'd check back up and let everyone know my impressions of the wildfire WF110-m1 I bought 3 weeks ago.
It arrived in a crate that wouldn't fit a bike 1/2 its size, and as you can imagine it took a LONG time to assemble. About an hour to unpack it and clean the oil off all the parts, and close to two hours to assemble it, and double check all the nuts and bolts.
After that, I drove it up and down the street about 6 times re-adjusting all the brakes, throttle, shift pedel and kick pedel.
So I got the bike on a thursday, but It really wasn't ready for a real drive until the following tuesday.
Now as some of you know the wildfire WF49-M1 is a 49cc fourstroke 4speed noped and the ""upgraded" model I bought is a 110cc fourspeed. So they are not true mopeds, but they follow the moped fourm of having a step thru frame, exelent gas milage and small overall size.
I own two running mopeds, a Tomos TT-LX with an A-3 engine, and a Trac. I'll compare these to the wildfire when it matters.
As for the drive. It has more power then a tomos with the 70cc kit, but then again it is a larger engine 110CC I found top speed is just 45mph.
I'm a fatty, so your speed may be greater. my tomos tops out at about 37mph. my stock trac at 33.
The wildfire pulls much better then any true moped due to its manual 4 speed trans, so its not fair to compair the two, but I will say I enjoyed the better take off from stops.
The Wildfire and the Tomos have about the same build quality, but the both are a distant second to the Trac Eagle. its fit and finnish are automotive quality.
I was worried that the wildfire would be crappy since its built in china, but its not bad at all.
Ride is about the same for all 3 bikes. The shocks on the tomos are a weak spot, the tracs are a bit too firm, and the wildfire is about right, maybe a little too much bounce on big bumps, but not to bad.
The tomos and Trac beat the pants off the wildfire in noise and vibration. The wildfires 4 stroke engine sounds like a dirt bike, not a moped, and it hits a point were it vibrates pretty good. The Tomos will vibrate when it nears top speed, but not as bad as the wildfire, and the Trac just doesn't vibrate at all.
All three bikes handle about the same, with the Tomos having a slight edge over the other two.
I like the lights on the wildfire better then the 6volt system of my tomos, and way better then the tracs. But the wildfire has a battery, so its cheating! It has high and low beams, good for late night drives.
Well, thats it for now, I'll post some more when I get the time. If you want to see pictures They are posted in the wildfire section of the picture portion on this site. My trac is also there, Its the black one.
Hope you enjoyed.
I've got about 120 miles on the wildfire as of now, and well over 800 on the trac, and 2000 on the tomos, so I haven't made up my mind on what bike I like the best. I'll let you know when I make up my mind.
