Been looking at reviews etc, on these Monaco's. Thing is, I've heard the performance is 'very ordinary' without modifications. Is this true? I'm in Melbourne and as far as I can tell there's no agents down here (?). I'm all for engine mods but IF I'm going to spend a fortune on mods, then I may as well just get a better/ bigger scooter (?) I've owned both Italian and Jap scooters but nothing else. I like the look (and of course the price) of the Taiwanese products but have no idea about their reliability, performance, parts availability etc,. The parts factor is particularly important as I had an absolutely woeful experience a couple of years ago with Aprilia Australia, who seemed to think waiting 3 months for a part to arrive from Italy was "normal". (p.s: I'm not light at 95kg and quite tall as well. Freeway capable not neccessary.) Your thoughts ??
