I agree with Curt and Dak on the BeeWee. When I saw it on the internet, and then in the scooter magazine, I though it was ugly. A trip to the local Yamaha dealer opened my eyes to this little bug-eyed scooter as a nice looking scooter. After just washing it today, I had a really good look over it, and agree with Curto on build quality.
Quality: Overall - Exceptional
I also took off the mud flap on the back, and it gives it a better look in the rear end, and thought it was a bit flimsy. All the parts are of reasonable quality, and its bolted and screwed together tightly. The battery compartment is easily accessed, and so to is the spark plug, simply by undoing a few screws.
Comfort: Overall - Reasonable
Being a bit taller, and a bit heavier than Curto, Dozer still fits nicely on this little scooter, and doesn't look like the Ape in the Nintendo game "Mario Carts". I sit well back from the front of the seat, and it probably took me about 300km's to find a natural spot on the seat where I was comfortable.
Performance: Overall - Good
Being 95kg's, the BeeWee isn't too forgiving on my back when I hit a pothole, or bump in the road but other than that, its takeoff, top speed (90km/h on flat) and general handling are good. I haven't experimented with performance parts, YET!
Practicality: Overall - Good
Now I have, but dont usually carry a pillion on the BeeWee. It would take Danny DeVito and Gary Coleman on the BeeWee to feel comfortable as the seating arrangement is not generous. 2 up is cramped and uncomfortable, but is possible. Curtos points about storage are spot on, it fits my XL open-face helmet nicely underseat. I have however felt the need to add a medium 28ltr. Topbox to mine, which eases the strain to pack carefully and tightly, and now I have plenty of storage.
At 3 Grand plus on roads, I can honestly say that It's well built, and great fun, but the 125cc price war my put this BeeWee further down the list on some peoples choice. The VS125 from Bolwell is also a whole lotta scooter for the same price, and its 4 stroke! Would I buy another BeeWee? Hell yeah, its more than a scooter, its a statement.
