Still a good buy, good price

General Comments:

It has good power, looks are great, and a smooth ride one or two up.

Best MPG so far riding is 46.

I will soon have the 600 mile check done and update my reviews.

The seat is a challenge to get used to.

The speedometer is a JOKE. The MPH is so small I can't read it. The large outside numbers is KM so I guess I will have to learn to convert them to MPH. Also the speed shown is way off. I tested it with a GPS I borrowed.

I still am impressed with the scoot so far. It has more than enough power.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
