Does anyone know anything about this scooter? There is a new rider in Calgary who is interested in it. http://www.kijiji.ca/v-scooters-pocket-bikes/edmonton/2005-honda-jazz-scooter-for-sale-1-150-obo/583115109

Thanks

Shannon

My sister has one and I have rented them as well. They are very reliable and very economical but not particularly fast. I occasionally saw an indicated 70 kph.

Sorry late to the party S! Did they find one they liked?

One of my friends from the Safety Council has a Jazz. She loves it - she's also a member of my (former) motorcycle club. It's no worse than the 50cc Vino. Low speed expectations - if you're happy tootling around 50-60kph zones, you'll be fine.

I am torn about keeping both my Vino and the LX150… I love the vino for zipping around downtown and area, and we rode the LX to the club "meeting" yesterday. That LX has super great handling - I'd never ridden one before. At $77/year each insurance… sure is cheap.

I'm a little leery of the LX vs the Vino because the LX a little too tall for me even with platform boots, and the Vino is perfect for my miniature legs. Gets me all over too - I have ridden to every quadrant of Edmonton, and Calgary too for that matter! Just have to plan the route to meet the speeds.

They bought a vino in Calgary. The seller of this bike really didn't want to part with the bike.
