  • Re: Rise of the sub 125cc scooters

    Yes they really are good looking little machines. I love the synthesis of tradtional and modern styling. The Yammy is not my taste though. In the lead up to purchasing my Dio very recently, I was amazed at how many I was starting to see, along with the Address. I appreciate that this reflects the urban area in which I live and traverese. A ...
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    Ha Ha Ha. But there could be some truth in that. Some of my old friends once spoke of guys we new who rode them - and survived, as if it was a miracle. My take on this guy was that he was enjoying subsidized housing, and he had the time, ability and history to build them back to original. Also, he must of started before the retro craze took hold ...
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    Several years ago I was riding around Pyrmont on my pushie when I identified examples of these Kwakas on a verandah. I stopped to talk to the fella who was fiddling with one bike that was not under a cover.&nbsp;He initially displayed concern that I had itentified his hoard, but after some conversation he&nbsp;established that my interest was ...
  • Re: On endangered list

    There is no argument that the CB 125 E is pleasingly styled and great value. It no doubt is stealing scooter sales. But it wasn&#39;t for me. If I wanted a motor bike a Moto Guzzi V7 11&nbsp;is the ticket. Hardley comparable though. When I purchased my first scooter (Honda Spacey 250 - a sloppy grunt bucket), I rarely used my BMW R Series ...
  • Re: On endangered list

    I purchased privately a used Aprilia 125 Sport City with 1.3k on the clock. The scoot was mint. After a year it developed an electrical glitch which the dealer said he had no time to investigate further. Several prior&nbsp;repair attempts had failed to isolate the problem.&nbsp;It was out of warranty by about&nbsp;3 months. I sold it to the dealer ...
  • Re: On endangered list

    A scooter I see frequently is the Aprilia SR MT 125. Lots of these running around my areas as they are supported by a dealer (Racecourse Motors Randwick) strategically located to a high density youth market. Also they are situated on a corridor to the city that is serviced by frequent public transport. Great for drop off then p/u service ...
  • Re: On endangered list

    I would believe that the success Honda are enjoying with the CB 125E have taken potential sales from the scooter segment. I see these little CBs everywhere in the areas I traverse. &nbsp;
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    That&#39;s a kind sentiment. Thank you. I am absolutely delighted. This scooter has already exceeded my expectation. I will enjoy to run a short post soon. There is no doubt that the economies of scale enjoyed by Honda allow it to produce a quality product at a compeditive price for a product with which they have rich history. &nbsp;
  • Re: On endangered list

    Thank you for posting this. Coincidentally over the last week I have looked back over more recent years to guage the scooter sales market.&nbsp;I have some thoughts why the scoot market continues to slow from peak sales. But not now. Went the NSC Dio road yesterday and am organized for a P/U tomorrow. Have not even had a test ride (thanks Allen ...
  • Re: Honda Dio vs Suzuki Address

    It was great fun because you lived and rode its character. I was reading a European&nbsp;review&nbsp;recently detailing a modern well recognized scooter claiming for some it would be great, but for others, too sanitized; some folk enjoy a raw edge to their ride. Years ago that is mostly what you got .... &nbsp;
