Why do people hate on tomos?

So I know there not as cool looking as a puch magnum, by the way I want one so bad but I still think that they are a good bike. I was just wondering why it is that so many people don't think think the same.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

Mostly jealousy. Some of them are pretty ugly (stickers, plastics, etc) although they can be much improved with a little modification. The fact is, they wouldn't be basically the last of the big moped companies still selling mopeds in the US if they weren't decent bikes.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

I love Tomos ! They are reliable .

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

I could not agree more I wish I knew how to post pics because I think that my targa is starting to look bad ass and it's a great smooth ride.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

Tomos can be made fast so easy, it is like cheating, so the haters must be jealous

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

I think you also have to remember that if people stopped buying new Tomos bikes, then virtually NO ONE will be making/selling new mopeds.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

Most reliable of all my peds, cheapest, and 40+ with just an afordable pipe and carb combo, 49cc. Hate away...

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

I bought a new Streetmate last year. Best investment I ever made. I've had a year of trouble-free riding. Changed sprockets, modded the stock air box and exhaust, upjetted two sizes and get 45+ on cool days.

I'm glad I bought a new one, and didn't buy somebody else's problems. I don't mind working on my own bike; I like riding it a helluva lot better. So, the Tomos-haters can do what they like, as they watch me ride by.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

A35 is one of the best motors out there. I own two Tomos and two Magnums. The Tomos is faster stock, smoother and more quiet.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

people still hate on these? what is this 2007?

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

Fuck Tomos !!!!

Haha, just kidding. They are some of the best motors to use for swapping since pedals in the case, 2 speed, parts avail, and parts crossover.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

I like. Mm kickstart

I bought mine used (Quadro E-start) from a Tomos dealer in Holland. No real issues. Couple minor maintenance items. New battery, a couple bulbs and replaced a broken brake lever. Run over 2000 km in last 15 months. Buy what you can maintain and get parts for if you need them.

Tomos is the only readily available brand with dealer support around my neighborhood, so it was lucky for me that it is also considered one of the most reliable (if not sexiest) mopeds you can own.

lmao that is so fucking funny

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

I suppose a Tomos and Volkswagen are in the same boat where its the best you ever owned or it broke down on you and you hate them.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

Prolly cause they never owned one.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

2 reasons:

1. Like everyone says, they're really good. It's like hating on the New York Yankees. It's just what you do.

2. Tomos has long been the official bike of obnoxious n00bz from New Jersey (n00b Jersey). These guys pretty much sucked. They'd talk a bunch of trash, ruin their bikes, and then spend the next 9 months wining about it until they turned 16 and their parents bought them brand new Mustangs at which point you'd see them on the Buy/Sell forum trying to get $1200 for a seized Targa with bent forks and covered in stupid stickers.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

dey so ugly.. jsut sayin..

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

wow i feel offended cause i live in New Jersey. So i guess im just a dumbass noob with a shit bike who is best friends with snooki and pauly d. just what most people assume. but dont take me wrong. there are dumb people everywhere. im not trying to start a fight either. im just stating what i feel.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

I honestly don't know, I just got a ST myself off of craigslist for $500 and with a little TLC it has turned out to be a nice little bike.

Re: Why do people hate on tomos?

Hey, don't be!

People are generalising, but there have been many, many topics over the years, just like that, from your fellow New Jersey residents. The fact that you're not like that is a great thing. If you want to dig through the archives, you'll see quite a few posts from guys who buy brand new streetmates at 14-15, ask how to get it up to some ridiculous speed like 55mph, and then sell their bikes for parts when they get their drivers licenses. Don't be like that, and you'll get love, and not hate :)
