Buying Advice 2.5 - 3.5K

Discussion in 'Scooters' started by Vikash, Oct 13, 2015.

  1. Hi All,

    Hope this post isn’t too vague. I used to ride a crappy V-Moto and have taken a break from riding over winter. I am now ready to buy a new scooter and am hoping to get some advice.

    I am looking for something of quality that won’t break the bank. I really like the retro look, but could be swayed towards a different style for a great deal. Below are the models I have been looking at. I am aware that most of these models are Chinese/Taiwanese/Korean but would love some advice on which ones to stay away from. Please also feel free to recommend any other models. I am looking to spend between 2.5 - 3.5K.

    I would only use the scooter on the weekend (to the beach etc.).

    Models I have been looking at:

    SYM Classic (like the look!)

    SYM VS150

    Daelim Besbi (like the look and the price, but is it a bad scooter?)

    Daelim S1

    Suzuki Address 110

    Honda Dio 110

    Torino Famaso​

    Please let me know your thoughts? Plus any other amazing models/brands I have missed that are in my price range?
  2. New to you or brand new bike?
  3. Looking at buying a new one (brand-new) or as good as new.
