And yet another scooter manufacturer heard from. Big twist & go scoots are here to stay, and to me, that's a good thing.

I'd rather see a teenager on a 250cc scooter than a 600cc sportbike.

I just read a story on one of the recent Motorcycle shows in Europe in a print magazine. The organizers had allocated space for 200 exhibitors from China. Over 800 requests were received!

Better a small scooter than a liter bike! The main reason for roadkill is young kids on 180 mph bikes

For a weak translation of the Korean article...



That's how I spoke french my year in France in '75.



Anybody know how scooters do in the rain, in terms of protection from rain, spray and also in handling on wet streets? I like the idea of a scooter for riding in the wet, because they look easy to clean up after.

Default Re: Chinese Manufacturers

I went to the U.S. Motorcycle industry show in Indianapolis last year for the first time and was blown away by the number of Chinese manufacturers at that show... and it wasn't near 200. The variety of bikes they had to show was mindblowing. They were mostly small displacement bikes and scooters, but some had some really creative motorcycles up to about 450 cc.

Something like this Hyosung or a Honda Reflex, with a fairing and screen do about as well at weather protection as your average sport touring rig, perhaps a little better. As for wet weather handling - it's about the same as a motorcycle, but with better low speed handling and manuevering and a little easier to modulate the throttle for traction due to less power and a CVT (twist and go). Of course, you can't slipfeather the clutch with a CVT either, so....
