Its an awful looking bike for a start.

Hes either modded it to the extreme to add another 30mph onto it (which will mean your insurance will rocket) or he is lying.

shoud scrape bout 70mph standrd....

I would personally go as big as possible, you will only find yourself getting bored with the speed. If you the biggest you can, there wont be any chance of swapping it for something faster.

Did you measure that with a bit of string which unlikely to be more accurate than the timing lights/radar gun/gps etc used by people who test the speed for a living
70mph on the clock which is highly inaccurate maybe, But 50mph in real life allowing for the drag of all those mirrors

You'll get bored with the fastest just as quick but scooters aren't about the speed, their about umm not sure what they are about really :p


Yes, but if you get the fastest you can get, then you cant regret getting something slower then going through the hassle of trying to sell that and get a new one.

Gps.....

top speed is 73-74 mph listed by a few "testers" so i dont know where youre getting your misinformation from. then agin its nothing new to see you spouting a crock about stuff you hve no experience with whatsoever

its a 200gt not a 50/125 in case you arent aware, giving you the benefit of the doubt
