A 2007 Honda Reflex and her name is Susie. Cool

I bought it today for below-book value. It only has 2,8xx original miles on it and came with the trunk box. Perfect condition, great tires, new battery, solid as a rock, and liquid-cooled Honda reliability. Found it on Craigslist and had to drive 1 1/2 hours to pick it up, but it was well worth it. My dad drove me up to the St. Louis area and I drove the Honda home. I just couldn't pass this one up, plus it's the right time of year. It came from an older gentleman (in his 60's), who had purchased it brand new, with recently developing health issues and he can't ride anymore.

Rob, you are most likely going to recoup your money in gas savings if you ride that baby enough. Surprisingly, they can top out on speed on the interstate a lot higher than most people would think.

Congrats on a very cool scoot Rob! cheers cheers cheers

How big is that Rob? Is it a large scooter or a mid sized bike? Displacement?

Looks cool, I'd ride it Smile

Thanks, Dutch! Yes - it will be used regularly when the weather permits. It's a blast and will hit 80+ on the highway if you make it.
Oh yeah, did I say it gets 70-mpg average? Shocked

PD - it's a single cylinder, liquid cooled, 250cc Scooter. For a size comparison it has a wheelbase of over 60-inches, and with the fairing it's as long as a Yamaha 650 V-Star motorcycle. Definitely a full size scooter.

Pretty cool. It's hard to tell what it's trying to be in the pics because it's long and large looking like a mid sized bike, but the wheels and handlebars scream scooter.

Hell yeah, I'd ride it! Very Happy

The big scooters the top three are selling are incredible and quite capable. I see this one even has an ashtray/pipe holder. Just don't forget your windcap! Wear a good helmet and ride safe!
