Just a quick update about how I'm getting on with my scooter. I've been riding to work each day for two weeks now and it's been a hoot! It's very easy to ride, has more than enough power for riding in traffic, and some days I've commuted faster than I did on the Skorpion due to it being so much easier to filter between lanes due to it being light, narrow and the automatic clutch means you can concentrate more on the traffic.
After I'd used a full tank of fuel I thought I'd work out the consumption. Poor photos taken on my phone, but you get the idea.
After a week's commuting, the scooter had covered 132.8 miles and used 5.35 litres. That works out at: 113 mpg = 94 mpUSg = 2.5l/100km! A lot less than the Skorpion, and about a quarter of what the car would consume. Looks like a worthwhile purchase.
