ruckus generally gets bad reviews. unless you get the 250.

storage is kinda of a big deal for me as I will use this to get to campus.

Is this thing importable into Canada or is it on the never allow list?

the BW was pretty handy with room for 2, good storage, better styling then the Jazz, and good power, would get up to 80 k if i remember correctly.. i dont think the BW would bog down as bad on hills as compared to the Jazz
Aren't the 49cc's limited to 50 KM/h?

I don't think so, but you would have to check ICBC to be sure… most scooters from any of the big brands can go over 50k and are sold all over BC at motorcycle shops

When I rented scooters, they were Honda Jazz and locked at 50 KM/h. I thought that was the rule for 49cc's but maybe the rental place did it? That would be

Edit; they're locked at 70 KM/h

Also if this thread turns into scooters are for fags go fuck yourself.

and I don't wanna hear that "vancouver weather sucks" because I rode a fucking bicycle for 5 years in the rain and snow to get to work. You guys are just lazy pussies.
Have you looked into eBikes?

I say this because eBikes are cheaper because you don't have to pay gas. Also they don't require insurance.
If you do the math, the savings are quite substantial...also eBikes are getting so powerful that it can easily beat scooters (go on youtube).
Some of them can go more than 100km/h...although it's not recommended.

If you want a reliable transportation, maybe just buy a BionX kit or something. There's a lot out there though.

IMO, eBikes look better than scooters...

According to RIV:

Quote:
Admissible
2000 Aprilia RSV Mille 1000
2001 Aprilia RSV Mille R
2002 AND 2003 Aprilia RST Futura
2003 Coponord 1000, SR50 (LSM)
2004 and newer models*

Inadmissible
All other models
*So I believe it is possible. You have to make it street legal and pass provincial inspection.

The best in my opinion, having ridden and sold them all at work is the BWS50. Rugged, simple 2 stroke, hauls ass, and simple bolt ons can make it top out over 90-100kph. Bore the motor a bit and you're at 120kph. And it has Yamaha reliability which is above and beyond literally everything else out there (yes, including Honduh).

Not "locked", they just cant physically go faster.

whatever you guys get, make sure to wear proper gear with it. falling on asphalt without protection isn't too much fun (no matter if ur going 10K or 51 k).

too many stupid drivers out thr, specially summer. due to low profile (size and noise ) of scooter, its less safer than motorcycle.

Four stroke 50cc scooters are dogs. No aftermarket additions will help.
