Angeles City, Philippines – It is this author’s opinion based on a Rusi Motorcycle (new) given to me, is a without a doubt, a piece of crap. Rusi Motorcycle branches in Angeles City, Pampanga, Philippines, like many places in the Philippines (nation-wide) display a wide assortment of their showroom bikes outdoors (overflow or excess) with little or no protections from the elements,apparently not thinking about the end results of sitting outside in extreme heat of excessive rain for days on end.
Our Rusi Motorcycle is new, but and bolts are rusted, the odometer never worked and the service provider provides home service without tools. Although Rusi Motorcycle are chepely prices and attrative by the minimum downpaypent associated with monthly payment plan options, chances are your Rusi Motorcycle will be dead in the water long before you finish your payment. But don’t just take my word for it, look / click the photo or link below then click on the link below the photo to see how many people are trying to get rid of thier Rusi (junk collection) Motorcycle:

I bought 2 Rusi Bikes 3 years ago. Both MP 100s, they were rough and reposessed by Rusi, a 2011 with 6000ks and a 2010 with 8000ks.
I thought it would be a good incentive for my kids. Pass your exams and graduate high school and the bike is yours. Dont and its not simple as that.
I spent many hours restoring them to like new.
Now I cannot comment on all metal Rusi Bikes because I dont know.
The plastic covered ones are absolute 100% unadulterated CRAP.
The mechanics are okay but dont leave the bike sitting too long it with dry up and will need a strip of the carby and a new Battery at least to get going.
The plastic is thin cheap garbage that turns brittle. Buy a new panel and it will crack if you tighten the screw. Dont tighten and the screw will fall out and the panel will rattle and crack. Remove a panel and it is so badly designed and fitted that you will probably break it when you put it back. The mechanic at the workshop never broke it/ No he did not and by the time you get home you need new screws and will crack hem when you tighten
It surely is not rocket science to design easy interlocking panels with a good quality plastic that will stand some stress or knocks and not crack.
The only conclusion I can make is that the Chinese manufacturers are deliberately turning out poor quality, inferior panels just so that customers will keep buying new ones.
I have welded and welded but no sooner back on than they break elsewhere. DONT buy a RUSI unless it is plastic free.
I own a Rusi 110 and it has served me well, with 45,000 Kilometers without any major problems. only thing i've changed is the chain guard and speedometer cable. The bike should have a metal chain guard as it was plastic; however I replaced the chain guard with a metal one no problem now. My bike is Ramwind Mp110 2011 model
my rusi has been serving me at it's best, i never had any major issues experienced.it is now almost 2 years & my rusi still runs like brand new. I do believe that it is not on what kind of motorcycle you're riding with, it is on how you maintain it. my neighbor's Mio had more problem than my rusi. my brothers suzuki visits the talyer more often. well currently mileage of my rusi is 19,459 & still in perfect condition.
I sold both of my big bikes; to include a very fast Suzuki 750. I am more than pleased with the sales and service I experienced. Of course, my 100 will not be as fast as my Honda Steed, or Suzuki GSR..duh, I knew that. With my wife and I on the 100, we both have no complaints. I will buy several additional bikes to share with my friends that visit from the States, and my local family. 5-Stars to Rusi. I feel safer and I seemed to lose my attitude that can come with a big bike. I also added a helmet cam to provide a tad more protection from those that say I ran over someone...haha Ride on!
I am on the way of acquiring my RUSI 100 in place of may Honda 155 which I sold for being heavy for me. Now, it's on the fourth month of my installment and the odometer is now on 1,685. I notice some observations a new user like me could find. The RUSI 100 is weak, it is never designed for racing racing purposes. You cannot go as fast as you want when you overtake along the road so you need to calculate a longer distance for you to take such step for if not you'll be sandwich in between cars before you could take your lane. Two, I have seen in my RUSI 100 that there are parts along the carburetor assembly that there are some fittings not exact, there are gaps therefore the bolt also is not properly placed as exactly as it should be. Third, I subscribe to the statement of the former reviewer that technicians have no complete tools and I have seen that when someone else had a fixing of his own RUSI150. The tools used are not the exact one to avoid roundhead of bolts. What he has done was to hammer it in order to remove thus making an additional expenses to the owner for buying replacement bolts. Fourth, if a company is to promote it's products, it has to make impression to the people that they can give you the best services from processing of papers down to the smallest one including technician services. So with the provision of parts ready and available for anybody if and when they wanted anything for repair and modifications.
