Summary:

Reliable, easy to handle, not the best looking, but very safe to ride

Faults:

I bought it off of a friend who treated it unfairly. It needed a new brake drum, new rear wheel, fixings for the back end, right front indicator and a new battery, as the old one wasn't holding its charge. I fixed it up earlier this year (2012) and now it runs like a dream and comes with no central stand. No idea what happened to it, but still have the side stand.

General Comments:

Starts up in one, very easy to take off. Acceleration is very good. Handles perfectly for my riding style (fast). The braking is also excellent.

I can't really say any bad things about this scooter, apart from where the light controls are located, but apart from that, it is spot on.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
