Atv Discounter now has them for $2499 with free shipping. Looks tempting. Hopefully they will get a 250cc model soon.

My 1986 Moto Morini K2 350cc motorcycle will do 100mph and get 80mpg driving normal speeds and is rated one of the best handling motorcycles in the world.

What does that have to do with the enclosed scooters we were talking about?

I think the point is that it's not new that a scooter can get good mileage.

What size wheels are on that scooter too? Can be an issue if you actually want to go someplace using the interstate.

Parts though...well, I don't really know any Xingyue dealers.

Everyone claims the GY6 was designed by Honda, yet Honda never used it on any of their machines. Nearly every website citing this information has copied it verbatim from the same source - funny how quickly misinformation can spread when people want to believe.

I personally do not really like 3 wheelers just due to cornering issues. For stability we can have 'magic training wheels' :-).

This gets a little bit closer: http://uk.gizmodo.com/2008/04/15/mon...its_the_s.html

I would love a super aero, enclosed tandem motorcycle with trainingwheels that retract above 25MPH or whatever. It seems really hard to balance low speed/high speed transition and I'm not too sure how tilting in an enclosed 'death capsule' with my legs unable to touch the ground while sitting in a leather lazyboy type chair, I bet that'd be really scary.

THis would be best probably, even though it's 3 wheel the tilting seems more controlled: http://www.treehugger.com/files/2007...enture-one.php

the GY6 was used in asian market scooters and is built in china currently under license from Honda.

My 150cc scoot was getting about 65 MPG. I highly doubt a heavier trike with the same engine would get better gas milage. My guess is that the odometer reads in KM's like many other Chinese scooters.
