I do not own an Arrow, and have never ridden one, but have sat on both the new style and the old style at the local dealer. The new one kind of reminds me of a Honda Express/Yamaha QT50 type bike. From everything I have read, they are not good for modifying, because you can't get pipes that fit them. What I like about them are the seat, the tubeless tires, and the single sided swing arm. What I don't like about them, is there doesn't seem to be any room to carry anything. I have saddlebags on my Sprint and STs, plus you can put a big box, basket, or motorcycle tailpack on the luggage rack. If if weren't for that, I might consider one, to use for long distance travel, since the ONLY problem I've ever had with Tomos mopeds have been flat tires. With an Arrow, you wouldn't have to tear half the bike apart to fix a flat, just stick a plug in it, air it up, and be on your way. Despite the fact that the seat doesn't LOOK comfortable, I've found that the seat on my Solex, single seat Puch, and the bicycle seat I put on my TFR were all way more comfortable than the seats on the Sprint/ST/LX. Length doesn't mean anything when it comes to seats, it's width that counts. Peace, Jerry.
