Looks sweet, Would definitely consider the 300cc. Seems like a good versatile sized scoot.

little pricey though...
50cc model 1995 (in the region of) ($3252USD),
125cc model 2495 (in the region of) ($4069USD),
300cc model to be confirmed
but can expected to be 4495 (in the region of)($7325USD).

Also I think this is the first two wheeler I've heard of with a larger disc brake in the back.

Looks like the source for them, or a clone. I've not heard of Hanway Motors, so guess it's wait and see whether a plastic body Chinese cvt knockoff of a classic metal two stroke shifty Lambretta will gain an audience (I'm reminded of the plastic Ferrari body kits that were installed on Fieros back in the 80s ).

300cc is certainly enticing, at 22hp is approx the same output as the Vespa GTS300. Obvious questions are how does it perform, and how well is it put together. (Is it built to the standards of a Kymco/SYM, or the stuff that's sold on the floor at Pep Boys?)

Anyone read anything to indicate whether these are expected to wash up on our shores or will just the UK get the pleasure?

These guys release some "special edition" 300's last year with piaggo engines. not sure if they'll keep the same engine for the 300 but from what i've read I would hang on to see if the chinese engined 50 and 125 are any good.

They look quite well put together and there are other british companies making/importing chinese bikes to quite a good standard, Sinnis springs to mind.

So THIS is what it would be like if hipsters got into Chinese scooters.

The scooter looks good, wonder the quality.

Looks nice. I hope they come state side. Although with those integrated turn signals I'm not sure they would pass.

Don't UK advertised prices also include a 20% VAT (value added tax)?

Its looks good.
And for that price it must be a quality product.
We cannot forget its a limited quantity model, its not like the zuma clone that at least 20 factories produce. So the price is a bit higher.
Its a bit what Noco did: http://www.scooteristscene.com/news/...abruzzi-tested

By the way i must confess i own 2 necos and the quality is very good: Over 10.000 miles in the 50 cc and 5.000 in the 125cc without problems

I love this idea if they are quality pieces and not just generic Chinese in a nice package. If I remember correctly(not likely), someone was supposed to be building vintage style Lambretta's a few years ago, I guess that is off, so these will have to suffice. I emailed the company and just got generic, bot type response.

Don't know about the quality, but they are beautiful. Looks like a scooter should.

Would really be great to see these in North America, but I'm not sure what the chances would be.
