I think when it comes down to the purchase, it will be a Zuma 125. However, since I'm leaving on a Gold Wing trip soon, may just wait to see what new models appear by next Spring.

Yes, I want the CVT, since recently sold an Elite 80, which actually worked quite well, but just sold it. I live on a gravel/dirt road, so wide tires will be an advantage.
