    100cc 2stroke VS 125 4stroke

    Hi All! I'm new on the block and thought I'd put this one out there to see, if any of you fine (and informed) people can assist me in coming closer to a decision as to which way I'll go. I have been lead to believe that (broadly speaking) 2stroke engines have more power/cc than 4stroke. I know that its not quite as simple as that - both offer different levels (& kinds) of power @ different RPMs. My dilemma is this: I have approx. $3k to spend and am looking @ Yamaha Bee Wee100 and the new Bolwell VS125. I kind of fancy the BeeWee, because its 2 stroke, said to be quite punchy and services won't break the bank, however, I'm open to suggestions/comments/wisdom. I look forward to hearing from you. cheers!

    Damm that would be a hard decision.  It might come down to looks, storage space, and what extra can you get from the 125 that you cant get out of a Bee Wee.

    Hard choice and if you like 2 strokes well its even harder. Simalar acceleration i would have thought but the VS would have the top end to power all over the beewee above 90km/h. The beewee fast off the mark for sure and cheap as chips to maintain. The VS will be smooth give you extra storage room and probably on the road you will feel the difference in tyre combinations. The beewee gives itself to customising it just that little bit easier then the VS which basically would be staying the same. Forget performance mods its just not worth it. So what to choose. If it was city short trips and you like tinkering then the beewee. If you like just flicking the starter and the odd trip on the highway then grab the VS.......Good luck

    Don't sweat about the servicing of either as even though the 2 stroke would be a little cheaper the 125cc 4 stroke is not much more.

    I like both scoots mentioned but the VS is a much more versatile day to day proposition, 100cc two strokes are more appreciated by enthusiasts.

     Good luck I'm sure you will like either scoot

    Hi, when I was making my decision on which scoot I stewed for months, in the end I bought the X9-500, it had the speed to be safe on the roads I use not to hold up traffic, had the storage space, and was big enough to be comfortable and not feel cramped sitting on it, and of course the price, these's a run out sale at Peter stevens at the moment and got mine for $7680 on road, make a check list of what you want in a scoot and start a list of possibles then narrow it down.........Pete  [ read my short review in scooter reviews in the forums named "first impressions" X9 ]

    Hi Pete! Will do the list thing - seems a good way to get serious about making some decisions.$7680 is over double my budget so 125 CC scoots are the range I'd be looking at.
