300 lbs!?!?! for a 150 cee cee scooter? Who designed this thing, an ex-Buick Roadmaster tech?

It needs fins and big chrome bumpers at that weight. Jeez. Fer ghods sake, my CR500 weighed 260 lbs soaking wet. And my '56 Lambretta 150 tipped the scales at around 200 lbs, tops, and would blow that Honda into the giggle bushes.

Sorry, I just don't get it I guess...

Anybody notice that Fonz really looks badass on this thing? At least 300 lbs. should put quite a dent in the Beemer that just pulled in your path!

Cool

Wonder if this is part of the journalists job that blows. Imagine getting taken out on one of those things, at a test. Careful guys!

Fonz, thanks for the review! I am seriously considering this one for my wifey. I think the 150cc bike is a great intro for someone getting into riding.

I just want to know, what is the reasonable top speed on this thing? Is it highway capable?

I dunno. I have a hard time getting around seeing a Japanese scooter costing more than the comparable Italian scooter. I'd get the Vespa. Who cares about water-cooling in a commuter-scooter?

Well, actually, being a cheapskate I'd get the Kymco.

You're welcome Doc, top cruising speed is like 55... 65 with tail wind and downhill... I wouldn't put this on the highway unless it's rush hour and you live in a state where you can share lanes...
