Great Review on webBikeWorld

There's a great review on webBikeWorld. It has good pix as well as a couple of videos.

Actually 62.1+ miles is 100 km. Don't you want to learn the metric system?

Not mine, but here's a 2010 Madass with 200 miles for $1600. Lot less than the $2400 MSRP.

Any updates from new owners - how are they holding up?

I would also like to know about the 50cc.

I have 14500kms on my 125 (about 9000 miles), its weeping a little oil and the left side blinkers are not working at the moment. The only other issue is that I busted the fork seals on it at 5000kms otherwise just routine maintenance.

It still will cruise at 80km/h (50mi/h) and last time I checked it was getting 2.8l/100km (84mpg) and it's not blowing smoke so it seems like it will last longer mechanically.

Crashed it the other day scraping the pegs on a roundabout as I dug the brake pedal in. A few scratches to the bar end and the brake levers and a busted blinker was the total damage. My gear sustained more damage.

There was one that went 58.2 at Bonneville this year. Apparently she lost a couple MPH in the altitude difference.

I happened to be in Milwaukee this week driving around looking for one shop when I drive past your scooter shop. I was like wait, I know that place from adv. Should of turned around, but had places to go. I can't wait to check out the store this summer when I get here full time.

Thinking about getting one of these for my 10km ride to work for when I can't be bothered riding my bicycle.

Max speed on the way to work is 80km/h with only one small hill.

How do they handle a 120kg rider?

The gal who was up at Bonneville weighed 130 without gear, topped out at 58, but has gone faster at lower elevations.

I guess the answer is no.
