Three words describe this scooter: Alot of Fun! I bought my '01 from a guy that lives about 10 miles from me. I got an incredible deal on it ($1200!!). The bike had only 2800 miles on it when I bought it. The only things I have had to do have been to replace the tires (10" rear, 12" front) and replace the cap that covers the antifreeze compartment (blew off when riding). The bike runs like a champ. Off the line, it smokes other cars at a stop light. I have had the scooter over 70 mph (as indicated by the dash), but suspect its about 2-3 mph less than that. Most of the time, on the highway, I ride about 65 mph. I get nearly 70 mpgs!!! The quality and build of the bike is admirable. I have owned many bikes over my time riding, and this has to be among the most comfortable bikes I have ever ridden. Sometimes though, my upper back starts to hurt, due to the far forward positioning of my feet. This bike has a lot of practicality to it, too! There's ample storage in the rear. It can easily hold two full face helmets, or several bags of groceries! The bike has easy to use signals, lights and an easy to understand dashboard. It even has a digital fuel gauge! The bike has a front brake on the top right handle and a rear brake on the floorboard right side. I love the looks of the scooter and get lots of compliments and questions, something which I never got on a regular motorcycle. All in all, you can't go wrong with this scooter. It's so much better built than what you will find in the Chinese Clone market (take the QLink clone for example, which just looks like a Helix, without the quality parts!!). If you want a reliable, good looking, great performing bike, and can find one used, buy it!!!

I purchased a 1986 Helix in early April and have not been able to stop riding it since. With the price of gas ever increasing this has been the best purchase I made this year (Under $2000). The Helix had 9300 miles when I bought it and I have put 5000 miles on it to date. It has been a blast to ride this summer and at 75 mpg it is my primary means of transportation now. One of the best features of this scooter is the rear storage compartment which can hold more items than one might imagine. Also, with the creative use of "bungee cords" you can secure quite a number of items across the rear passenger seat, a Laptop Computer, for instance. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is looking for an inexpensive means of transportation not to mention the "fun factor" that comes as standard equipment.

This scooter was top of the line, and after all these years can still stand up to the expensive brands. Starts easy every time, cruises at 50-55mph. I had it up to 65 but backed off because it gets squirrelly. 75 mpg

Great scooter. The Helix created the classification of "Maxi Scooter" back in 1986 and it hasn't changed much in the last 20 years. It's sort of odd for a scooter because it's got a motorcycle size engine and a trunk big enough to bring home groceries. Handles the highway easily (but I stay away from roads where people are averaging 80MPH though). Does great in town too. Not the prettiest one on the road, but definitely a keeper. Solidly built, well designed. I didn't like it at first, but now I would buy it again.

I've had my Helix since '95 in the rolling hills of Maryland & I was planning on upgrading after moving to Florida but since I've moved there's no way I'll give it up for a bigger machine. It provides plenty of power for all the hills & it's proven to be a reliable scooter with only a few problems over the years: a split carburetor intake manifold & broken drive belt. It reliably gets over 65 mpg with great pickup. On the highway it gets a top speed of around 70 depending on head wind but feels comfortable at around 65 mph. I use it in place of a second car & plan to keep it for many more miles. The older model requires a little extra back support, which they may have improved on with the newer ones.

Pros: It is a good commuter. You can load a decent amount of stuff on and in it. Gets 60+ MPG cruising, 55+ with lots of stop & go. Putting the gas tank in the floorboard makes the center of gravity low, which makes it stable in high winds. It has a foot-controlled rear brake, like a motorcycle. This is helpful when stopped on a hill and you need both hands (like for putting on shades when wearing a tight helmet). The low seat height (26.2") is good for short-legged, light riders. Cons: Needs a tad more power (another 50+ cc). It is long, longer than some motorcycles, so if you park perpendicularly, your nose sticks out into the street. Rear wheel tire valve is tough to reach (not much space). Using a valve extender helps a lot. Handlebars poke you in the gut in hard, slow turns.

I noticed no Helix reviews out here so here's one. Acceleration is good, but very little passing power above 55-60. It will handle two up with no problem. The MPG is between 60-70, you might get even more than that. It is comparable to the Reflex in size and performance. The Reflex reviews that I have read state the Reflex doesn't accelerate as well as the Helix in town but give you a bit more top speed. The Helix will top out at about 70MPH, more than fast enough. The two main differences in the Reflex and Helix is the location of the rear brake control (it is a pedal on the Helix) and the seat height as the Helix is MUCH lower. Oh, and of course, the Reflex has a much sportier appearance. But the thing about the Helix is that it started it all. People started using the Helix for touring and the accessories followed. Unlike most motorcycles, you can spend all day on a Helix and feel no pain at all. On all but interstates the Helix can travel. And unlike the big scoots like the Silver Wing and the Burgman, you don't have the top heavy, weighty feel. If you can run into a decently priced Helix in good shape, I would go for it. The Reflex, at least in my mind, isn't any better than the Helix. But, admittedly, price not a consideration, I would have a Reflex. But I do love my Helix. And no, after four motorcycles, I am NOT trading my scooter!!!
