Personally I wouldn't mind riding one of these around town for running errands and such, unfortunately there's only room for one motorcycle payment at a time in my wallet. I hope this scooter sells well, but I fear that it may not because we are all too "manly" for them, just as you say, which is a shame. Another problem might be the number of extremely large vehicles on the road. Some people are terrified of getting run over by something bigger than they are, so they will never even consider something this size, regardless of the benefits.

Seriously, I hope it sells well. Maybe then we can get some of those lovely 400 and 500 cc bikes that are sold everywhere else in the world instead of just 600 cc or bigger supersport bikes or the huge giving-birth-riding-position cruisers. Or maybe I'm just a sissy...

Can I get an inline 4 scooter? no more twins please. Scooter vs bike comparo needed

When I saw this article I said, oh no not another scooter article. After I read it I said to myself hey if gas gets to $3.00 a gallon I might have to get one. Seriously, because I commute on a freeway where the power and agility of my Ninja has gotten me out of few jams, I don't think I would consider a scooter unless it was quick and agile. To that end I think a scooter vs bike comparo can settle this? MO should look at scooter or bikes that cost the same amount and compare them. Until Sean can prove to me that a scooter can do it I would spend my money on a used bike. Cause America is land of SUVs and you need acceleration, braking and agility to survive on the US freeways, roads and streets.
