  • Adiva AD3 LT

    I have just come across the 2016 version on YouTube.&nbsp; Allen mentioned it about 2 years ago ala EICMA 2014. Looks great and has all the electronic bells and whistles. Might be suitable for just about anyone, but - the quoted price ($16K) is high - dream on........

    &nbsp; &nbsp; Alas - we are stuck with the unimaginative, whose creations are as grey and black as the bikes they produce.
  • YOUR scooter design

    &nbsp; f you had a clean sheet on which to design a motor scooter from scratch, what criteria would you give to the design ? Would it be say&nbsp; Looks? or Servicibility or Economy or Performance or Stowage etc . Just maybe there is a better way, but then again, many love to stick to retro designs of the past. OR ..maybe the design of ...
  • Variators and grease

    I have come across an advert for Polini grease. It states that the ingredients (Lithium &amp; Molybdenum disulphide) &quot;Lengthens roller life &amp; protects ramp surfaces&quot;. I would never consider grease and variator rollers / ramps to be compatable. Main guide tube yes - but rollers &amp; ramps ? What do you think ? &nbsp; &nbsp;
  • Kymco K50 Concept

    Whilst brousing U-Tube I came across a new concept scooter by Kymco. Called &quot;K50 Concept&quot;.&nbsp; It appears to be unashamedly targetting both the Yamaha TMax 530 and BMW 600/650 - almost a copy in many respects. An inline twin cylinder motor, mono shock, Brembo brakes (ABS) and outer belt drive. It appears to be in the pre-production ...
  • Re: Road conditions

    Rod - I couldn&#39;t agree more - however, I nearly got bowled over by a mobility scooter on a pedestrian bridge in Strathalbyn the other day - no &#39;toot&#39; - and a fair turn of speed (estimated 20kph). However - my priority hazard driving awareness situation is between 2.30pm - 3.30pm when mummies are heading for &quot;offspring&quot; ...
  • 2005 Honda Siverwing 600 transmission

    &nbsp; Can anyone tell me what type of transmission is in this model - Is it a normal CVT transmission (ie. variator / rollers / centrifugal clutch / belt drive) or some other type ? Thanks
  • Re: Kymco 200+

    &nbsp; Pyra - You are correct - it was 181cc (my mistake) - BUT - it was still a lousy buy.! The problems were (quite apart from the poor performance) : - 1. Seat issues&nbsp; 2. Major clutch problems due to clutch linings of inferiour quality and grade (replaced twice) 3. Very poor machining of variator (rectified) 4. HP fuel line seperation ...
  • Re: Kymco 200+

    Aspro Boy - What you observed is common sense gone astray by the manufacturers. Low power combined with too-higher weight will always result in poor performance and highter wear rates - observe the attrition rate of 50cc scooters because of this struggle. I still whince with the outcome of an Aprilia 200 that I was mislead to believe was a 198cc ...
  • Kymco 200+

    It has become quite tedious to have a new model scooter misrepresented by its title/name. The new Kymco 200+ should, at the very least be called a (minuus) -200.&nbsp; A larger capacity engine with a good power-to-weight ratio overall does what this bike doesn&#39;t..&nbsp; Hardly worth the effort ? &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;
