    Summary

    Expirience with the Orange SWITCH 6 LE

    Orange SWITCH 6 LE Review James Bond drinks his martini shaken, not stirred. Orange folds its tubes and doesn't squeeze out of a profile like everyone else. Brits are just stubborn. But that's what makes them so lovable. The SWITCH 6 LE has a storage compartment in the down tube for the first time, but otherwise remains true to the typical Orange features. An angular look, a single-joint rear triangle and the loud paint job can't hide the brand's core. You have no idea if you prefer high speed stability or playful handling? Then you can´t go wrong with the Enduro von Orange. It´s handling is pleasantly balanced. The view of the geometry data clearly reveals: the Orange SWITCH 6 LE has a sporty seating position. If you love crisp downhill runs, there are other Enduro around under 8000 Euro that would suit you better. The SWITCH 6 LE has higher quality wheels than the competitors with comparable prices.
