BMS Bi-Metro XLT.

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the Battles Scooters area, been searching the forum and could not find any information about the BMS Bi-Metro XLT. Looks like a Honda Super Cub clone. http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_1...sSports-abcart.


Not sure if I did that right. Anyway, any information about the machine would be welcome.

Thanks, Jim.

Don't know about that company but bought the same scooter sold by Fly scooters who went out of business and it was a complete disaster. I ended up scrapping it out.

The scooters look to be made by the same company.

My Fly scout problems..

400 bucks more get you a new SYM clone which is far better then this china ship. 2500 bucks get you a new honda supper cub in Mexico . Just don't know if anyone can import a honda back to USA without issues. Even finding an old HOnda from 30 years ago will be better then this. 800 bucks to 1200 max. Even if you have to work on it and dump 300 bucks in parts it s still cheaper and will be running 20 years from now .

What he said. Here's a real world SYM Symba: well made from a reputable company. There's a ride report here somewhere of a guy who rode one to Alaska. Hard to argue that.

The "Bi-Metro"? "XLT", yet... Sounds confused. Could that be the worst vehicle name ever?

Thanks for the replies, sounds like another "You get what you pay for" item from the far east so I think I'm gonna pass.

Regards, Jim.

I thought that they were part of evil circus out to dominate the world I heard that they even know whom was on the Grassy Knoll when those shot got taken. They said it was someone pissed off Aliens wanting there UFO back from Area 51 but could not come up with the impound fees.
