Yamaha Vino 2011 or Honda Metropolitan 2009

Postby jobrist » Sun Aug 07, 2011 10:04 pm

I am about to buy my first scooter and wanted to hear different opinions on what to buy. This is my first motorcycle of my life, so any information would be great. I have read that the Yamaha is better for colder climates and better on non-flat roads.

Please any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

They are both great brands. Base your decision on which one has a better dealership close to you, and try to ride each brand. You really can't go wrong with either.

Stay away from the Chinese stuff, in general, but don't be afraid to check out the Taiwanese bikes as well: Kymco, Sym, Genuine, TGB.

Not the fastest on the road but both are very reliable. Personally I would look at the Taiwanese offerings for better value to the devalued dollar!

I agree with John. TGB is an outstanding brand.
Believe in the possibility of doing the impossible.

How many cc's is the Vino? The Metropolitan is 50cc and top speed is around 40 mph on flats.
