Practical inexpensive and reliable 250cc scooter


Battery went dead. Seat tore after dropping it.

Dealer replaced battery free of charge. Repaired seat tear with resin glue.

General Comments:

Overall I am happy with my Bashan 250cc scooter. It is reliable, and gets me where I need to go. Performance is pretty good. I can reach highway speeds of 65 - 70 M.P.H. with ease. I once had it up to 80 M.P.H.

It is not too overweight like some comparable 250cc scooters, and handles pretty good. Before purchasing this Bashan, I shopped around for a Piaggio, and was not impressed with the $7,000 + price tag, and decided to spend $3,000 on this Bashan, and have been satisfied ever since.

I would recommend this brand of scooter to those who do not want to spend several thousands of dollars on a scooter, as they are reliable and more practical for a scooter.

The dealer I purchased this scooter from has treated me right ever since my purchase. Their demeanor, service, and parts availability are excellent.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
