Might as well chime in, seeing as I've just realized this site has a scooter section. I live in NYC. For the past several years, I've had a Honda CH80 Elite. It is near-perfect for the city. Its only flaw is that it doesn't go from Summer to Winter well without work. Might be the carb, might be the wax-powered auto-enrichment "choke", might be bolts working loose on the airbox. It always happens when it becomes too cold to work on outside. I usually buy one for under $1000 in the Spring, then give it away when it gets too cold. I'm trying to discontinue this practice, though it has delighted a few friends. I've noticed that, in the last few years, lots of little scooters have gone the way of electronic fuel injection, and that is the one thing that could pull me from the indomitable Elite 80. Does anybody have any long-term experience with either of these modern scoots? They would certainly suit me, but I'm trying to weigh the differences between the two, and whether or not fuel injection in general will solve my annual why-doesn't-this-thing-start/idle-right-anymore issue around November. The only issues I'm aware of is the fuel pump overheating on the earlier Zumas.
