General Comments:

The Vino 125 is a quick & easy to ride scooter.

It has a very sporty look with the chrome, mirrors, turn signal lamps, gauge's etc. The seating is really comfortable & it handles itself quite well.

The performance matches the looks. It will cruise along nicely at 40-45mph, mine is still being broken in so I haven't gone much above that, but I agree with the left over throttle that it will reach its 60-65mph mark.

The fuel economy is also remarkable. I've averaged at 92 miles per gallon. The Vino only has a 1.24g tank, so depending on how much you ride, you may be filling up often.

The only thing that I wish was better is the wheel sizes. The Vino's 10" with its 240lb weight takes some getting used to above 40mph, especially on a breezy day. I would like to have the new Zuma 125's 12" wheels, but I prefer the overall look of the Vino over the Zuma.

For 2,500.00, the price I paid for a brand new 2009 version you can't go wrong. I look forward to a lot of happy years riding this cycle.

Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
