I have been looking at buying scooter for a while now, and researching the options. If anyone has any real world feedback, that would be cool. So what im looking at is 125-150cc models, because that's what I feel would fit my needs best. Of course buying one of those new little Honda Groms would be bad ass, but $3k+ is steep. The area around where I live is mostly 35mph speed limits with the occasional 45mph. Lots of lights and stop and go. What I have seen is there are many Chinese scooters, and apparently the best ones use the GY6 motors (that are apparently a Honda design). I can find lightly used Chinese scooters for $500-1000 depending on year, model, miles, condition. Is it worth stepping up and looking at the Honda and Yamaha models? They draw about twice the money. The Yamaha vino looks pretty cool... any input? or am I the only lame ass that wants a scooter?
