Noticed there was another thread that asked if Vmoto was any good, the posts went a bit off topic so thought id start a new one with my horror story. I’m not very technically minded with bikes so sorry if some of my wording is wrong. I bought a Vmoto Milan 5 months ago straight after getting my learner permit. Was attracted to them mainly because of the cheap price and retro styling. Really wasn’t much on them as far as reviews so I knew I was taking a risk. Anyway it went great for the first month or so. Was as much as you could expect from a 50cc I suppose, top speed of about 65-70 (at a push). Had my first service and after that it just went down hill. Firstly the brakes started squeaking like mad and I mean like real noisy eardrum damaging squeaky. Was driving me mad. Then the engine started packing in. First to go was its performance. It just stopped going any faster than 55 and even down hill wouldn’t let it go. I tolerated this for another 2-3 weeks before I noticed oil was leaking when I had it garaged and at this point I had enough. I took it back to the vmoto dealer and they agreed to get a mechanic to have a look. With credit to them they gave me a demo model to drive around on. A few days later I got it back and after a short ride it became apparent that there was no difference. Still no faster than 55 and breaks were still squeaking. I went back and complained but they tried telling me it wasn’t meant to go any faster than 55 anyway so wouldn’t look at it again. I thought that was crap and wasn’t impressed but off I went and just tried to put up with it. This was on a Saturday and within a week it got worse. Now not only would it not go any faster than 55, but the engine started cutting out every time I came to a stand still. My patience was wearing thin but I took it back to them and again gave me a demo model for 4 days whilst they got it checked out again. I got it back and briefly it seemed ok.. it still had the issue with the speed but it wasn’t cutting out. However I did notice that they seemed to have messed with the throttle because when it was stationary and I released the break it would start crawling forward. This was good for about 2 days and then it started cutting out again AND now it was acting extremely sluggish when setting off from stationary. Ridiculously sluggish, id have to full throttle it just to get the thing moving. I rang them straight away and complained. The agreed to have a look FOR THE THIRD TIME!! So I got the demo scooter AGAIN for a few days whilst they "fixed it". Got it back and it seemed great, they even sorted out the speed issue (it now went to 70.. wuhooo!). Went great for 2 days before the cutting out started again and the sluggishness. By now I was fed up and had already been looking for something else. I tried to contact the dealer again to complain but got a voice message (conveniently). They never got back to me so clearly they'd had enough of me and I’d had enough of vmoto. A week later I got rid of the scooter and got myself my fantastic Hyosung GT250R (another newish company funnily enough, perhaps I haven’t yet learned my lesson :? ) As a final twist to my horror story a week after I got my new bike I get a call from VMOTO head office in Victoria saying they had my details passed onto them and they called to say the issues I was having wasn’t covered under my warranty and that id have to take it somewhere else for repair! All this in 4 months of ownership! So anyone want to buy vmoto... good luck to you!
