Ah shucks, only 72 mpg, not yet broken in, 2-up and in the mountains! You'd better take it back and demand a refund! Better yet, just bring down here and kick it to the curb in front of my house.

Thats damn good mpg, I get about 50 by myself on a zuma 155. Im going to look into this scooter, I love my Zuma but want to be able to go a little faster than the 155 will take me but I also dont want much bigger because I like the smallness of the Zuma. Thanks for posting Im going to look into the CitySport now.

I prefer to ride in the mountains, where there are lots of curves and scenery. I don't plan on riding more than an hour without stopping for a break.

Power seems more than adequate although I did let it slow down on the hills rather than use a lot of throttle. It handles really well, even two up and is a blast to ride on the tight twisty roads that I prefer. I did pass a Harley on a twisty road. Once I get more used to it I'm sure I'll be passing some sport bikes too.

Wheelbase on the CS250 is under 54", about the same as my Super 8 150. It's definitely one of the smallest, and lightest 250s out there.
