If you could have fit it in the Honda bag you could have had it for dealer cost.

Ahhh...I was wondering if the 125s had reached dealers yet. I've considered one of these for commuting my 20 miles of stoplights.

Top Speed?

0-45mph?

Mileage?

Scooters are cool, Congrats! I love mine.

**Edit**

What is top speed on that thing? Specs say it'll do about 65
How big are the wheels? 12"
Gets about 85 MPG

Chris for reference, my Aprilia SR 50 which is a 49cc 2T goes about 55 MPH. I don't know what my 0-45 time would be. I should time it. It also gets about 90miles to a gallon. One quart of 2T oil will last about 3000 miles.

I had Mandys '08 Vino 125 up to 60, the Zuma has a little more top end than that. And at 60, her scoot is rock solid.

That's sweet. My friend just bought himself a ruckus and it's fun as hell to tool around on that thing.

You wanna see my itinerary?

it will get to 55 on it's own with no wind or hill help. any more than that takes an awful long time.

0-45 i haven't timed, but typically i am faster out of the gate than the surrounding traffic.

I commute with it from joliet to oak brook and it's not too bad. used to take the same route by car before they extended 355. i will cruise up 53 with it without worry. however i don't stay on 83 for very long. headed home i usually hop off at 31st or ogden before the autobahn starts...

i'm bringing it to bike night if it's not pouring by then.
