    What are they, other then the obvious difference in engine size and
    a different seat (and the dash)?

    Can anyone confirm if they're the same length?
    Same wheelbase?
    Brakes?

    Also, can anyone give me A GOOD reason why they didn't use the
    same seat on both!? It seems like a rather silly way of increasing
    production cost for no obvious (to me) reason.
    :huh

    Thnx

    The 125 has almost 7" longer wheelbase. I think there are other small differences here and there that are necessary due to the higher top speed over the 50cc. A GOOD reason why they didnt use the same seat on both is because it will not fit on both.

    I suspected this, but I had NO idea.

    I was surprised to see that the wheelbase of the 125 was longer then
    on my 50cc peugeot which SEEMED bigger..

    Thanks!

    I'll ignore the smartass seat comment :D but I guess I deserved that one!

    LOL, I literally laughed out loud at that one. Just giving you a hard time :D FWIW, I had the Agility 125 and it was a pretty nice scoot for the money... well worth the 2K price of admission for a brand new one. I'm sure you could probably find a lightly used one right about now for less than 1500. I even modded the headlight on mine while I had it :evil:

    Oh that's YOU!
    :lol3

    I saw those pics A LONG time ago :D .. on the other forum.. and that
    you replaced it with the 250S.. numbnutz!
    :cry

    Considering US and EU prices don't match up rather well.. the Agility
    was actually almost the same price here and there. Too bad my Kawasaki
    was almost twice the price USA has to pay.
    :cry

    Long story short - I got a 2006 that was sold to 1st owner in 2008, and
    ridden for 2 summers only with 2950km on the clock (~1800 miles).
    The previous owner suposedly upgraded to a Kymco Dink 200 (I think
    it's called something else overseas..). The asking price was about $1500.
    Chewing on it a bit resulted in free shipping (the scoot is 300 miles away
    at a Kymco dealer) and a topcase!

    :freaky

    Just keeping my fingers crossed that it arrives tomorrow as planned!

    BTW, is the stock light really THAT bad? I'll throw in some overly expensive
    bulbs, and was thinking of adding a set of BikeVIS running lights (led)
    (http://www.bikevis.com/motorcycle-led-running-lights.html) just to
    get my ass noticed.. as I can't be seen in clothes that aren't black (=cool).
    :evil

    :D Yea thats me! As for the headlight... i'll put it this way... you could at least see at night. But I wouldn't have wanted to be doing 55 on some winding back roads at night with it. That headlight I added was almost ridiculous. I would take that mod over a whole lot of others. It was just so much easier to see at night, almost just as easy as pure daylight. With the high beam on I could see REALLY far ahead and I didnt have to worry about what was coming up.

    Not only this, but it makes the scoot look so much better, along with the paintjob. :D

    :D Thanks! Anyone that wants to try something like that shouldn't get too intimidated. It really isnt all that bad, just have to take your time with it. Plus in the end I knew if I messed it up, I could get the entire headlight brand new for like $70 from the dealer.

    Well, with the Zuma 125, you can get a plug-in harness that will allow both headlights to work at the same time, rather than the one for hi, other for low the factory gives (even though both headlights have hi/lo beams available). With uprated bulbs, I've heard it really improves the bike's lighting.

    We'll see, I can't imagine it being worse the the one I had on my
    SpeedFight2.. but it's not a big issue since I usually don't ride at night
    on my scooter, and if and when I do it's within city limits, so there's
    enough light around.

    Thankfully, my Kawasaki has very impressive lights, and that one I DO use
    at night at occasions.

    My peugeot scoot for some reason had the high/low beams separated
    so that only one can work at a time.. as in.. you turn on the high, the
    low goes out! :huh

    I know it could have been connected differently.. but I just starting doing
    my own repairs and messing around with it in the last month of ownership.

    I usually just put the low beam on.. and kept my thumb on the "pass"
    button :D at all times to have both working
