:drool: I just might give up the zuma for this. This is exactly what I need, small & light 4 speed, good on gas and stylish as hell!!!

This thing just looks like so much fun to ride.

Looks like it's about 45-50lbs lighter than the Z125, too. I think the platform of this bike has the makings to be the next big thing. There are so many options with the 12" tire sizes. The f+r discs make it safe in the city. Super stoked that it's coming stateside.

The real question is though, - Will it fit in a ruckus? :hihi:

Now that I think of it, I might wait several months. I'm thinking of what happened to the PCX, first the 125 was released, then it was a cool bike, but then soon after, a 150cc model was released, which pretty much in California is the biggest change because now it's 150cc minimum requirement for highway access. Not always the best, but hey, there's a reason they made it 150cc minimum, for people like me who would do it anyway.

The legal factor for it makes me want to wait, to technically be "legal" for eventually modding it, and being caught doing 80mph on the freeway with it. It would just let the ticket be that much less of a hassle.

I'll swing by Honda in Torrance Friday morning to see if I can see one. Maybe I'll go to the front desk and ask about it.


Shit, might as well ask, if their is anyone there who knows enough about it, if there's any insight about a larger cc model in the works.

Are you talking about the wheels? or the engine?

I would get it while you can. I don't see a 150cc in the future because I don't see this being around in the future. Other than the enthusiast nerds I think the bike will be a bust in the US.
