    Thinking about getting a scooter to putt around on, this one will run 45mph but with a little tweaking run 70mph.

    Man that thing is a good looking scooter.


    Do you know if it will take a Zuma?

    It sells for about 3K, stock it should run about 45mph. With a little modding they say it can run 55-70mph. Rated at 141mpg, but the dealer says more like 100mpg. It has a 50cc motor, there is a 70cc kit that costs about $300 and that is suppose to make it fly.

    That's the Spider-Man 2 edition!!! My Aprilia dealership has two for sales. Those bastards didn't let me take one out for a test ride though.;6

    They won't let me test ride it either, I am just not sure how it will carry me. I am 6'2" and 315 pounds.

    In your case, since that you are a prospective buyer, no test ride, no buy. That's always my policy. If I can't test ride it then I won't buy it.
