2008 Schwinn Valo™ 150
Fun to ride!By (I am an Owner) on Feb 09, 2009
This might be a long review, but thats ok right?
I bought this brand new from Kline Motorsports in White Bear Lake, MN. I love to ride it, it's fun, economical. The only gripe I have is that on three occasions I had to walk it home. Now, granted it was only a couple of blocks. What was happening ... was it felt like I was running out of gas, yet there was plenty. The cause was pressure loss from the fuel tank causing the scooter to lose fuel feed. I would go from about half throttle, (keeping steady pressure in the tank) to FULL throttle (maxing pressure feed) and then have to stop for a red light (quickly losing all pressure feed), bummer. I talked to the service dept. and they told me that Schwinn posted a bulletin saying that in these specific circumstances fuel feed could be lost. I WAS PISSED OFF! To learn that a manufacturer knew about a defect, and would only tell you about it if you complain was just outrageous. BUT they were more than happy to fix it (under warranty of course). They installed a new intake with an extra air feed that did fix the problem. Hasn't happened again!
SO, If you own one of these scooters I hope you enjoy it a lot! I hope this helps!
