2007 Yamaha Scorpio
Smallest bike I've ever owned and I love it to bits; one of the best bikes I've ever had
Blew rear tail light bulb at 17000 kilometres.
I love the design philosophy behind this bike; easy to maintain, economical and tough.
It cruises happily at 100-120 kmh at 30 km/litre fuel consumption. Tops out about 130-140, and with a little tweaking would go faster if I could be bothered.
Good handling and ground clearance.
Comfortable riding position. I have fitted lower, wider handlebars as a personal preference.
The seat is at best adequate, although it has improved as it moulds itself to my butt.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
