that's not a very good review. You didn't mention whether it had a "seamless torque curve" nor did you say "the powah came on smooth as buttah". You didn't even mention "spooning on some sticky buns" for track testing......

I suggest you survey some mainstream bike mags for appropriate cliche`s then try again........

Silky smooth transmission?

And don't forget my all -time favorite-referring to Yamaha as the "tuning fork company."

Now that's original!

Note to self: Buy "Mainstream Motor Mag Writing for Dummys" Book this weekend. It might help if I actually read some other stuff. I'm at a loss here. At least I've never actually typed the sentence "born to be mild" before... right... now. *damn*

Sticky buns and stuff,
Steve

I'm living in Seoul (Korea) these days, and I see these scooters all over the place. Not sure they're Yamahammers though, they could be Chinese knock-offs. Anyway, they pimp them out with stereo systems, led lighting, custom upholstery, custom exhaust, etc.
