Driller is way ahead of me. I just stumbled onto this thread. Just picked this up yesterday. This was really my second choice for a new scooter, BV350 being my first. Couldn't find any really hot deals on them and nearest dealer is about 80 miles away. Kymco was only 5 miles from home and $4691 OTD, about $1700 less that the BV would have been.
Driller and I will be doing some performance evaluations soon at our local drag strip. Will keep all posted. So far, seat of the pants is very encouraging. BTW, took it out to my secret dyno test track, and can say it is quicker than my BV250 that has light rollers and Polini clutch spring.
