OK I know this forum is for scooters but given that I ride motorbikes as well I just posted this thread in the motorbike section too as it is very interesting for those who may have considered the benefits of a scooter but didn't like the whole feel of a step through type arrangment. For those who just get sick of stop start traffic changing gears, older riders who get back on after years and want an auto but prefer the feel of a motorbike, learners who just can't coordinate the whole gear thing, then this bike just might be for you. I think it bridges the gap between scooters and motorbikes. It is a liquid cooled 250cc with a CVT so no gear changing. It has a remote start, alarm, fm radio cassette with usb slot for MP3 flashdrive with weatherproof speakers built into the farings so you can doof doof down the road - ok so maybe this is a bit gimmicky but hey it will be a head turner. I had a test ride and it rides like a sports bike with a cruiser style stance and is really stable at low speeds in carparks etc. I understand Arquin will be distributing them. And yeah I just bought one of these as well as having my Sachs 150 - hey changing gears is great fun, but the V3 will be great for stop start traffic and good for the freeway. *Mod - edited to remove the CAPITALS! Please don't do this again. Carry on then!
