Is the Bristol Veloce 500 worth its P348,000 price tag?

What’s the first brand that comes to mind when someone mentions scramblers? Chances are it’s Ducati, correct? There are, however, plenty of alternatives.

The Bristol Veloce 500 is one such motorbike. In fact, it’s been around for the past two years already.

On paper, the motorbike ticks all the right boxes. It has an attractive scrambler design, an expressway-legal 471cc engine with decent output, and a relatively attainable P348,000 asking price. But how does this motorcycle’s performance stack up against its more established competitors?

“For P348,000, you have a very, very stylish bike that promises excellent performance, decent comfort, and may extra safety features ka pa to boot. Kung value for money din lang talaga and pinaguusapan, eto na ‘yun,” Grecia says in his review.
