there were so many scooter manufacturers!!! I bought a Hyosung, which again, I had never heard of until I got a dwi, I'll lose my license next month, and a brand new scooter is less than my Insurance will be. but I have been online trying to find ways to speed up my scoot and there are literally thousands of sites for mopeds and scoooters, the big problem is in America scooter/moped riders are drunks or kids, but in other countries they (scooter/mopeds) are major vehicles, ie a vespa owner in england is like a Harley owner in the US and most of0 the site I've found that know what a Hyosung is , are in foreign languages, but I gotta tell ya,,,, I love this thing! When I get my license back, I'm looking seriously at getting a new Honda Silverwing, have you guys seen this thing? its a twist and go 650 scooter!!
