Youre not referring to....

The new Cushman?
http://www.kjackmotors.com/site/index.htm
cause I didnt think they were out in the market yet.

(Doubtful, since the dealer network and good reviews you
spoke of don't apply here as of now.)

Is that true? I had a Gilera Runner 180 2T. The dragster and the Runner shared the same bad ass 2 stroke 180 motor. What a fun scooter! I wish I still had it. I sold it to an older gentleman that lived in the Boston area. I keep wondering if he rides it...

Nope. But Daelim's are more obscure than the scooter I'm thinking about. By far.

A few more hints...

-This scooter is sold elsewhere around the world under a different name

-It started life as a 150cc. Now, it's somewhat bigger.

DING DING DING....We Have A Winner!!

Now, who's ever seen the new Genuine Blur 220i, and who's actually ridden one?

(And for those outside the US, we're talking about the PGO Max...)

I work at a golf cart store which also sells Genuine scooters. We just sold one to a fellow, in gun-metal gray. First one I'd seen in the flesh.

Of course I had to ride it after PDI as part of my ongoing QC pursuit

Snappy performance, but the step-over seemed high to me (30" inseamer here) and the seat seems WAY high to me. Really up there!

Also, the c-stand looks real low and prone to scraping for such a sport-oriented scooter but thats just my initial impression and I haven't tested that theory.

That being said, the fellow who purchased it has been back in and is delighted with it soooo? He's racking up some respectable mileage, including freeway, twisties and such and had no complaints.

Genuine scooters and the Genuine Scooter Company are both first rate. Great products from a great company.

If it floats your boat go for it!

Went to an unnamed Rally, Lady pulls in and attempts to dismount her Blur which promptly falls into me while sitting on my Big Ruckus. Somehow between both of us, she and the Blur is caught and righted (while still sitting astride my BR), damage was one bruise on my forearm, nothing to either Scooter. Not 30 seconds later whilst still attempting to dismount the Blur she loses balance again and the exact same thing happens; this time I saw it coming. Somehow, no damage again. Good thing those blood pressure pills.

The average Big Ruckus I've bought , and I've owned 12 to date , had about $700 worth of cosmetic damage on it . One believe it or not had 500 miles on it , and had $1,200 worth of damages . The best one had $200 worth , so every one even though the average one I've purchased had about 500 total miles on it , had some damage . Truth be told most people for their own protection shouldn't be allowed on the road , or really any where near a motorized 2 wheel vehicle .
I'm not saying that to put them down , just being honest . The guys at my local dealership tell me that I would be surprised at how many people , with brand new bikes never make it out of the parking lot .

I like the Blur, great size and concept, but I prefer flat floor boards.
The center bone is complaint on my Burgman, too
Kymco seems to love big bone'did scoots, much to my dismay.
