I won't touch chinese scooters. Just not worth a damn, imo. Bought one on a whim just for the hell of it once and I seriously had to WORK to get a thousand kilometers out of it.

BIG scooters are heavy.
I've got mopeds that weigh maybe a hundred.

Is the box quick release? Or nuts & bolts, wrenches & ratchets, etc?

Yes, turn the key and push a button..That's it.


Maxi scoots are heavier than small frame scoots. a 650 Burgman weighs much more= over 600lbs.

Even this 200cc maxi can cruise at 60. My old Burgman would top 100.
