très facile à manipuler


Explanation:
Bonsoir!

Cela veut dire que la moto se met facilement dans le sens désiré sans qu'il faille faire trop d'efforts au niveau du guidon.

Une moto facile à manipuler au guidon n'implique pas forcément qu'elle tient bien la route.

Il ne s'agit pas non plus d'une franche manipulation au guidon non plus. Une moto peut être facile à manipuler sous-entend que sa manipulation est franche.

J'espère que cela pourra aider.
