    That thing sounds awesome, but I wonder if it would be comfortable to ride. It's awfully small.

    It's probably terrible after a half hour of riding. I don't think long distance touring is the point of it. I think it will be huge as a cheap urban commuter. Once I can try one out I'll see if it can cruise on the 55mph roads out by me.

    Urban areas. Places where you can do almost anything without needing to exceed 60mph.

    i could put one to use, if my 6'1" frame could fit on it. I have been thinking about a little scooter or small bike possibly. Most of my driving is short trips with 35mph speed limits.

    I looked into the Madass 125:

    and the Derbi GPR125 Naked :

    The problem with these is that they excel at maneuverability, But they go so slow that maneuvers are actually boring.

    If my Vespa scooter topped out 55 I wouldn't have bought it. But at 200cc, it tops out at 100, which is much nicer.

    Plus, I pass people on the highway with it which just makes every grin.

    If I lived downtown I could definitely see that being put to regular use. If it gains the following the ruckus did (and I'm sure it would) there will be plenty of things coming out to get a little more pep out of em. They look pretty good stock though Im digging the two Cel posted up a lot more. Looks wise that is.

    How about this?

    2013 Cleveland Cycle Werks- Misfit 250

    And around your price at $3,200 and change. Estimated ~100 mpg and can reach highways speeds. Although it was noted that it wouldn't go much faster.

    I like the look of the madass. Reminds me of a trail 90

    Never mind, after reading the reviews and seeing the price!!! on the Madass, this Grom trumps it on just about every front.
