    Genuine scooters are very well made.

    Re: Zuma or Ruckus?

    Ive owned all and the Grom is better hands down........ Zuma over a Ruck any day. Clutch takes a bit of time to drop the weight and zoom off so it can be a bit tricky on a busy road... Grom is chain driven and a clutch rips right off. Zuma stock is hard to keep up with traffic and can be a bit scary.. mine was done up and still wouldnt keep up with my Grom....

    The only thing is zuma can be had for 1500 or less... Grom used is at 2-2500 for a cheap one but can be modded beyond any bike out there

    i was looking at the grom at first as well as older ct70s...but like you said i haven't see a used grom under $2500...they look fun as hell...but i am opting for a 100+cc automatic scooter cause i have every intention of squidding it up with my shorts and sandals (no shoes no shift) plus there looks to be more rear racks on scooters for extra storage

    Agreed, A grom is a wee motorcycle, not a scooter.

    +1...def more fun but more expensive...i'm basically looking for the honda civic of scooters...reliable, lots of parts availability, rear rack and just enough engine to make it qualify as a motorcycle while keep the smaller scooter size footprint

    when searching i suggest the free CL app (CPlus for Craigslist) if you have an iphone...lets you search multiple areas much easier than a computer

    for the prices some people want for these used scooters a brand new buddy 125 is looking pretty good

    Kawi z125 non pro doesn't have a clutch. Probably even more expensive than a Grom though.

    there are some nice ones on facebook marketplace as well

    Bah, a 50cc thumper of a scooter is a speed bump. I wouldn’t feel safe recommending that to anybody riding beyond their corner store, and even that could be a stretch.

    PCX150 is what I went with to replace my 50cc. Definitely a great scoot.

    Tony, didn’t someone bring a Burgman to one of your non-sportbike track days? Kudos to him!
