I like it. The Suzuki TU250 caught my eye as well. I like the "classic" look a lot!

Will it handle like it's from 1980 as well? Definitely like the look.

We use many TU250's for MSF training.  150 more cc's would make that bike a hoot.

This Yamaha looks way too sensible to sell well here.   :-\

It has fuel-injecting and a kick-start?! I love it.

I love it!  New price is a bit high. A chrome luggage rack and a lock box would be perfect. But a maxi scooter might be better.

P. S. The downside is u can't kick start a dead battery with E. F. I. The one reason to have a kick starter!
