I haven't had a chance to take it above 60, but it sure gets there quickly. It does vibrate a bit at idle, but is very smooth upon take-off. It starts immediately as if it were fuel injected. It's a very impressive scooter.

I wish I had a more picturesque setting for these pictures.






Very nice, the yellow and black really looks nice and is hi-viz. Damn fine score.

Re: vibrating a little at idle, scooters tend to have a different harmonic at idle with the rear brake clamped, than without a brake or just the front brake clamped since the entire driveline/engine are unitized. i dont know if thats what youre experiencing, but try idling with the front, then just the rear binder clamped and there is typically a marked difference.

Enjoy!
