I had one for a year. It's a great scooter and perfect for urban scootering. It even kind-of blends in with bicycles at the bike rack.

The Vino 125 is a 50 - 55 mph bike stock. That's on a perfectly level road that happens to be quite long. Plenty of mods available to make it faster. I had added Dr. Pulley sliders (10.5 gram), NCY variator, 1500 rpm torque and clutch springs, 105 main fuel jet, Slipstreamer S-06 windshield, 150 cc overbore kit, and NCY high lift cam to mine. That made it a pretty quick scoot 0-40 mph, and it would top-out around 62 mph on a long, flat surface. Any wind or hills would knock it down to 50 - 55 mph (modified.)

I traded it in after almost a year for the Tmax as I wanted to go faster. But if you don't have a need for 55+ mph speeds consistently, the Vino 125 works great.
