Found 7th Mar 2012
With spring just around the corner, we are offering you the chance to win a new Baotian Monza 125cc scooter plus a year's free insurance worth around £1500 in our free-to-enter competition.

This is yet another fantastic opportunity for you to win a scooter. Don't delay - get your competition entry in now.

Canterbury-based Clements Moto has become established as the UK Baotian importer and has carved out a nationwide dealer network, which is still growing fast. They have kindly donated prizes for T&G in the past and the latest offering is this good-looking Monza, a 125cc scooter.

With more than a passing resemblance to a Vespa, the Monza looks very Italian and even carries an Italian name. It is built using plastic over a steel subframe which (in theory) makes things lighter and much cheaper to produce. The body panels do their job perfectly well, the shiny paintwork is well finished and the additional coloured stripes are a simple, but effective, design touch.

Power for the scooter comes from a simple, air-cooled, carb fed 125cc four-stroke engine which was lifted from the tried and trusted Citibike (albeit with a different engine sidecasing). The motor is economical, as you'd expect, which is a big selling point for scooters at the moment (not surprising really with the cost of petrol nowadays). The engine has both an electric and kick-start and fires up easily enough on the button, although it takes a couple of prods from cold. It's nippy enough once it gets warm though and will manage more than 60mph, so it's capable of tackling any road, dual carriageway or motorway you care to use. It's not the fastest 125cc scooter on the block, but it's by no means the slowest, accelerating briskly and reaching its top speed quickly enough.

The seat height is low enough for most riders and helps to provide a good view of the road, plus it's quite comfortable too. The Monza runs on 12-inch Hongdou tyres which are actually quite good; it has twin chrome rear shockers to keep things under control (they aren't adjustable, but are more than adequate for the job). Brakes are the usual front disc and rear drum, both of which are good enough to stop this little scooter without fuss. The ultra-modern-looking LED indicators, running lights and rear light all work very well and from a practical point of view the scooter even comes with a chrome fold-down rear carrier as standard.
