I've the same bad stories about BadAss issues from across the pond. Too bad because I realy like the idea of the bike. Maybe they will be quality control improvements in the 2010 model.
wanna bECO,
Make room for the wife's truck, hate to see you cut off from future purposes.

I've been on the 50cc bugger...it's like a motorized mountain bike. It makes a great pit bike, which happened to be what the owner used it for. Yes, zero storage...it's definitely not competing for that. Tall as hell for a scoot. the 125cc engine is exactly what the madass frame needs slung under it. The 50cc engine is slooooooow as hell. That's the single biggest complaint I've ever heard about 'em. Maybe with this, it'll get some better reviews.

I'm sorry, but I think these things are turds. The 50cc is so heavy and slow. I can't imagine the 125 being any lighter. At least they look fast.

thought about that, but the damn HOA wont allow it. oh
and BTW, although engrish is my primary language, I meant to say I am cut off from future "PURCHASES" In fact, just last week I had to pass on a elite 150 for 125 bucks. I couldn't freakin believe it. The panels alone would have brought that much on ebay, and the freakin bike ran!!! aaaaaaauuuuuuuuugggggghhhhh!!!!!

I won't lie or laugh, the fact that my ex-wife spent the money I had set aside for shipping a motorcycle on a sewing machine was one reason why I divorced her. I made the money, she didn't - she just spent it.

I feel sorry for a lot of guys when I hear them say "my wife won't let me get a/another motorcycle/bug/car/gun/or other toy".

As for the Madass, I think it is kewl, but the weight I can find online for it is 210 to 220 pounds dry. Husaberg claims 240 pounds dry for my FE570. Now granted, the Husaberg is probably 4 times the cost (I haven't seen a price yet, but I am guessing $2500 to $3000), but I already have the Husaberg.

*If* I had an SO (no one will have me) who wanted a little putt putt, then something like the Madass would maybe be on my list.

I want this:

"Derbi DH 2.0, a mountain bike sized motorcycle with a small engine and very light weight. It has fuel in frame like a Buell, an automatic transmission, a 100cc air cooled 4 stroke engine, underseat exhaust, inverted fork, air monoshock out back and a dry weight of 88 pounds!"
