2019 Vitus ZX-1 CRi Aero Disc

Professional Reviews

The ZX1 is a great all-rounder, and the discs are a big part of that. Switching between this and some substantially pricier test bikes from ride to ride, it never felt like a step down to return to the ZX1.

Like a mate who is just easy to get along with, the ZX1 seems to build allegiance through being dependable and straight-talking. By the same virtue, this friend wouldn’t necessarily be the one you’d pick for a wild night out. It’s not a thrill-a-minute kind of ride.

In fact, it’s not outstanding in any one particular way, but it’s still one heck of a lot of bike for the money.

That, I’d wager, will make it very appealing to a lot of people.
