Brilliant

I must have owned over thirty motorcycles in my life time. This is likely the best handling bike I've ever owned.

They are great machines. Where do you get parts for it? I am looking at one for sale here in Fl, and it needs clutch lever, cable, and rear caliper.

Take it easy.

1997 MZ Skorpion Sport

Faults:

None.

General Comments:

I just finished another adventure ride with friends, and loved the mountain roads that this machine is so talented at.

I am short and have adjusted the height with no problem scraping equipment.

I do however, have some concerns that I may not be able to get parts at some time in the future.

MuZ made the Skorpian sport from mostly shelf parts from other manufacturers. For instance, the 660cc motor is from a Yamaha XT660 enduro.

Having owned a 96 Skorpian sport and spending lots of time looking it over, I believe most of the other bits and parts were probably also sourced from other manufacturers, mostly Yamaha, thus parts should be easy to find (assuming you know what they are compatible with).

The motor is solid, so with proper care you really shouldn't ever have to worry about that going bad, and certainly it could be serviced at any Yamaha shop.

I really miss mine, only sold it to help pay for college :(

The handling and brakes on that bike were sooo nice! And the torque from the single cylinder engine makes for a very pleasant ride. Good luck.
