I'm replacing a moped that was destroyed

I plan to get the Tomos Revival with a Bi-turbo exhaust. I had a targa, and was really happy with it.

If you don't want to do any repairs and don't mind paying more, get youself a Kymko scooter. I've heard and seen that they are quality.

People usually buy a moped, because they want, specifically, a 'moped'.

It's the design, and styling and tire size that make the moped stand out. You might have to repair them occasionally, but it's easy because the design is a nice, basic engine that you can see with your eyes.

Scooters have newer engine designs and from an owners perspective, a little less work (no mixing of oil for example)

I bought a new tomos, had it for about 2500 miles before it was smashed. I had to fix 2 flats, tighten up the oil pump cover, tighten the main bolt on the handlebar/forks, fix a snapped throttle cable, tighten a screw on the oil tank, fix a snapped brake cable (both cables were my fault, I overadjusted them),

Not bad, really, cause I fixed all the 'problems' all myself... Hope this helps.
