From 2 articles I read on Bloomberg and Walstreet, it looks like the Saudis have a long term plan. In the short term, they are losing money hoping to make it back once demand becomes more than supply...

I think I posted a little too early. We went out this morning and gas was up yet another 10 cents. It's not up to $2.30. It's gone up 55 cents in less than a month. And yet, I haven't seen anything...

And another 10 cents this week. Regular unleaded is up to $2.20. It's already far from what I paid at the lowest.

I'm pretty sure the PCX will cost more next year. Having said that, I am also pretty sure Honda could offer the Moove at $2,999 or $3,099. As I said, people who buy a Ruckus buy it to modify it. It's...

The Elite was $2,999 in 2010 and the Ruckus was $2,149. If Honda would bring this scooter here, it shouldn't be that much more than what it was then.

It's a shame but I think the Elite had its...

I too think that it should be an entry level scooter. Sure, 110 cc isn't going to take you to warp speed but it would be a lot safer than riding a 50 cc.

Honda... Moove! The New Elite?

From Thailand comes the Honda Moove. It's a 110 cc scooter sporting 12" wheels front and back. I think this is the type of scooter that would do well in the US.

I can't disagree with the data but what's behind it? Is the drop in sales due to a lack of new products? How many choices were there? Were some models discontinued and not replaced?
