Happy and here's why
First of all this is a real review from maroubra nsw. The bike is good. It's fatter than the honda varios from bali because it has wider wheels which are also smaller 12 inch compared to 14 inch meaning the forks must be wider and the rear hub must wider for the thicker wheel which widens everything out on the bike's rear making it a fat bum little pocket rocket. Nimble and zippy. They're fine wheels. A bit hard on bumps but that's also the suspension on big bumps at speeds. It's very responsive steering .twitchy but stable. I love it. You can...'t beat a honda vario though.. they nailed it. The kymcos seat is a bit higher than the vario / honda dio. I feel like it makes the handle bars feel a bit low. But that is the style common to vespas and others. Its a fat little pocket rocket i wish it had fuel injection. The foot area is big flat and great. Seat is wide and comfortable. Acceleration is smooth from the throttle grip. Be sure to adjust out the excessive free play in the throttle grip see the owners book easy. Keys feel like thin rubbish but do the job. Indicators dash controls everthing perfect easy. Mirrors great can see everything. Easy to accidently press the kick starter when pressing the centre stand with foot. Under storage amazing big. Kick stand is auto up and must hold it down when leaning the bike to park it else it flips up with spring. I like this feature forceasy take offs from parking. Brakes are great and strong and smooth. Bike vibrates noticebly at idle. ...if you hold the brakes on it vibrates more. Fine when moving. 3 year warranty requiring $150 services at 500kms 1000km and every 2000 after that. Or you can just change the oil yourself...tells you exactly how in the owners manual. Also explains how to change the gearbox oil. I like the instant starting soon as you press the button it starts instantaneously. Bit wider of a scooter wide mirrors too slightly harder to lane split. Good bike for 2700 at homebush.
Drove well screwed up fast
Bought mine second hand went a week before problems came drives well, but mine was carbarettor ,never buy carby please its crap when you break down honestly.
even for 600 dollars
naahh i would buy another bike like real bike or 250 cc scooter or different brand like honda or yahama
Useful, reliable transport.
Easy to start and ride. Quick off the line and keeps up with urban traffic with ease. Parts expensive and long delay experienced (eg 3 months) for simple carburettor part. Handles well and brakes well. Fuel tank is way too small. Range is only about 120 Km with gentle riding on premium unleaded, this fuel highly recommended by dealer service mechanic. Overall a useful scooter.
love it one one issue since got it but warranty sorted that ( gear housing got torn to shreds ???)
does 115 on free way onto harbor bridge.
love this bike will be very sad when i have to replace it.
parts can be expensive though.
fast easy to move when not being ridden as in can drag it into a park when i need to
