I purchased this bike three weeks ago and have about 2000 miles on it (yes two thousand) I traded it in on an Aprilia Ditech50 that could not keep up in traffic and frustrated the hell out of me. (I had the Ditech50 only two weeks) When I test drove the Scarabeo150 (they wouldn't let me test drive the 50cc, now I know why) I was in LOVE. Aceleration was 500% better than I had imagined it would be. It handled great. I let three friends drive it who are die hard motorcycle owners, and they all said it handled like a motorcycle. This has all the power I could ever want. It might not have the power of a larger motorcycle, but it will smoke almost any car on the road (or, at least it seems to) When you twist the throttle, it MOVES. It seems as the gearing is set to give maximum performance in passing, because the biggest acceleration JOLT hits you when you are going at 30 MPH and then OPEN IT UP. Wow! Its a rocket! (or, at least it seems that way to me, remember, I have little to compare it to, except to say that I am PUSHED back in my seat when I open it up, and the first time it happened was a little scary) I had it up to 75 on the freeway, but the wind in my face was unbearable (I probably need a windshield or a face mask. I keep it to about 60-65 on the highway, and it is a little more bearable, however, I cannot imagine faulting the bike for this... On the down side, on the second day I noticed it was getting too hot. Turns out the fan that cools the radiator was not going on. The dealer took the part from another vehicle in stock and fixed it. On the third day, the speedometer broke. It simply stopped working. It started making a bunch of clicking sounds, the needle started "twitching" and it simply froze. The dealer fixed this with a part from another vehicle. (Its nice to have a dealer willing to do this as parts could take 3 weeks) The speedometer numbers are too small and the red needle is too thin,(at least for my eyes) a quick glance at it is not enough I have to look down and READ it. There is a very bright "green warning light" letting me know that my headlighs are on. This seems pretty stupid to me, because the headlights are ALWAYS on, and cannot be turned off. Am I crazy, or would it be a better idea to have a warning light telling me if my headlights are NOT on? Anyway, this is a BRIGHT green light, TOO bright. It is extremely distracting, and in order to drive comfortably at night, I have to keep a little piece of black duct tape over it to block its extremely bright rays. The gas tank is to small, it seems as though I am filling it up every day. (I am) 2 and a fraction gallons is not big enough. All in all, I love this bike, if someone steals it, I will buy another one. If asked,I would recomend it to anyone.
