2006 Yamaha Vino Classic from United States of America
Fun, reliable, and economical transportation
Difficulty starting after blown over onto R side in a windstorm, but started fine after tilted back to L side, then righted again.
I love my scooter. She may not have much oomph, but boy is she fun to ride. I can get her up to about 43 mph on flat pavement, and 30 on an upgrade. She sips the gas (about 95 mpg), and handles very well on the back roads I ride to work.
I've had her for about two months and am very pleased. She was the last of two 2006 models the dealer had. In time, I may get an M class license and trade her in for a 125, but I don't see that happening in the near future.
The only major downside is other traffic. They tend to pass me even if I'm doing the speed limit (or better). I think they are just jealous. After all, I'm saving a heap on gas money.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
