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.

General Comments:

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.

Extremely reliable.

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
