I am checking out all the bike options out there, and I came across the Hardford recently. I have seen a few riding around and always thought they looked OK, and there seems to be quite a few that have been customized around too.
Ratlung and I went to the shop last night and saw somthing pretty close to this (the below pic is a 125s):
The HD-150S is 58K new and the HD-200S is around 71K new.
Considering that a tidy standard 125 Sym Legend can go for upto 30K on the secondhand market, and these 150 Hartfords can go for 40K or so s/hand (I hear) and that’s if you can find either. I reckon that 58K for a new one actually seems not too bad.
Does anyone have one or know anyone else that does? Good points vs bad?
The shop we went to had ONE there, and it looked pretty dusty, and not available for a demo. Is there a shop around Taoyuan or Taipei that carries both models that will demo them?
The photo above is taken from a UK website that indicates that Hartfords are doing quite well in the budget bike category.

(BTW, I don’t believe the HD-125S is available here)
