I don't have any info on this on in particular, but I owned ZS-JHF, a Robin HR100-210. They were made in France and are still very popular in Europe. Mine was a 4 seater with a 210hp Continental IO360. It was a lovely airplane with huge load carrying capability and it was reasonably fast. It compared very well with a C182 in terms of speed and load, but cabin space is rather tight.
The factory went bankrupt, however and was taken over by the Alpha Aviation clan from New Zealand - sort of. Look at the Alpha 160i and you'll see the similarities. Spares, certified AMO's and rated instructors are very hard to find, if not impossible though.
