Not exactly a scooter but this area includes other small engine stuff and its not quite a motorcycle My 2001 Avanti SuperSport moped, top tank motorcycle style with a 50cc two stroke engine and a tuned expansion chamber exhaust. Top speed is around 35-40mph and it gets about 80mpg with a 2.65 gallon tank!

Does this count as a scooter - bumped into him in Alta, northern Norway.

He had ridden from Holland and was continuing another few hundred miles to North Cape !

It was 90cc and he reckoned it sat comfortably at about 70 kmh (about 45mph)

I run a bike shop and we sold the Madass - looks great but the quality was very sadly lacking .....................

The Honda like that was the CT70. That bike is a Dax though. A Chinese knock off, I think.

Got pics of my new 2015 PCX150 and just a couple of where I went today on my first ride (75 miles).
The water is Rend Lake Reservoir. Man-made lake--13miles long, 3miles wide, 18,900 acres, lakeshore of 162miles, took eleven years to fill and one of the largest lakes in Illinois.

I bought a clean '02 Aprilia SR50 back in April. 1200 miles, one owner, couple scratches but nothing serious.

In May I wrecked it...

And this is what the machine looks like now -

I plan on adding a exhaust, suspension, & paint it this winter.

If it's a Ditech (FI), don't waste your money on the exhaust, it'll do next to nothing.
If it's not, you'll gain like 6-7mph indicated on the stock CVT setup.

Congrats. Must be some kind of bike buying fever going around here in the south.

I think you made a great choice. The HD200 is one of the best scooters out there IMO.
