Yeah I'd agree with the above...ALOT of Bang for your Bucks by the look of it.
Appears like a Zodi copy...or at least heavily influenced...not a bad thing if the build quality is OK!
Always a good idea to take someone with a bit more knowledge/experience when you go to see/pay for it if your not too sure yourself.

It looks like a decent sib at a good price. But IMHO you are much better going for a brand name, the Honda will only cost a few quid more and will have a much much higher residual value.
