I got it to have an easy, cheap and fun way of making the 18km journey to Sydney cbd over the harbour bridge. So far nothing but positive results. The Symphony 150cc engine keeps up with traffic without a problem and easly sits on 80km/h. Still has more in the engine and on a fairly flat run have hit 100km/h. Manages hills pretty well with only a little loss of speed but a squirt of the throttle gets you going again. Big hills do need a good run in speed to keep with traffic flow.

The larger 16" wheels feel great and the scooter handles bumps easily without feeling unstable at all. Zipping around isn't a worry even with slightly bigger wheels. Really comfortable and enjoyable ride. The scooter feels bigger with larger wheels and you feel like you sit up high. The seat is lower at the front allowing me (on the shorter side) to easily reach the road flat footed but still feel high. Really impressive.

Now the negative:
1. Under seat storage is small. Don't bother trying to fit a helmet. This makes a top box a must.
2. Fuel tank is small. About 5L which I think I can get 120km out of a tank but it does mean more frequent visits to the pump.
3. Front light seems a little dark at night.

All in all I would say this is a great scooter and safe comfortable ride - I think its a good deal!
