Previous motorcycleHonda Wave 125

Summary:

It handles and performs superbly for a bike in its class

Faults:

None as of this writing.

General Comments:

Although my MIO has a 115cc engine, this motorcycle responds a whole lot quicker than my Honda Wave 125.

Handling is easy in sharp turns and during cornering at 70kph. Likewise, handling performance in stop and go traffic as well as straight driving is suavely smooth.

The only negative thing I have about the MIO is fuel efficiency. I can go as high as 42 kilometers per liter on the Honda, whereas I can only do an average of 28kms/liter on my MIO. This big difference is probably due to the MIO being fully automatic, and maybe because it has a bigger carburetor.

Other than poor fuel efficiency and its a bit annoying, "scooter" sounding muffler noise - the MIO is one motorcycle I will not trade in for another bike in its class.

Nothing has broken down on this Yamaha Mio, a scooter built for the asian roads.

General Comments:

I really love my Yamaha Mio at115 cc, a CVT powered scooter, perfect for Manila's traffic, and it insures me against future oil price hikes.

I am a new biker, and I'm confident with this scooter.
