I'm not sure who is the market for the big scoots, but it isn't me -- I like the little ones because they are cheap and small and fun to ride around town. For long distance and fast speeds, call me traditional but I'd rather be on a motorcycle. Is their appeal mostly that they have automatic transmissions? (Anyone remember those CB750s with auto transmissions from the 1970s? Maybe they were just a few decades before their time...)
i to own a 125 Vino 2007 i enjoy it i ride it 44 miles to work each day and have a blast on it. And im a big guy 260 lbs 6ft if i want a larger one i would just go back into a motorcycle. Seems to make more sence to me but to each his own.
