with nice suspension, 55watt headlights, big rubber, light weight, nimble handling, this small bike getting 100-110 mpg works in the city quite nicely.

now go ride into the sunset like a hero
Hmm, i thought members here were reporting 90mpg, but i googled it looks like 70 is realistic if riding noramally. if only i raced vintage bikes, i would have known that

BTW, it also seems that most riders and the manufacturer are reporting about 85mpg on the 125 madass

and yeah, you linked your store website... but not mentioning your shop directly is even worse. you ever thought that some members don't want to be part of your "research"? and clearly you are not just 'getting feedback' since you seem to try and counter everyone with a negative comment with some cheesy salesman response...

Uhm, lets see...

I can get a Suzuki EN125 for $2000 in here, the MadAss is $2500. The difference is that the Suzuki has 4 extra horsepower and 18" wheels wich make it much more stable.

Or for the same $2500 I can get a Honda CG150, wich has 14hp, or a YBR125 with the same 12HP as the Suzuki.

All of the above will run circles around the MadAss, and going from 100mpg to 90mpg is not really worth the performance penalty.


As I see it, the MadAss is just a stylish underbone/scooter for those that don't want to be seen riding an underbone/scooter...

In fact, that MadAss 125 shares it's engine with several of these underbone chinese bikes, as that is all it really is, a stylish underbone:

$2800 in the US?

Why the hell would you buy that thing for? That's Ninja 250 / Hyosung 250 money, both of them handle better, have better tyres and suspensions, and about 4 times the power. And I really doubt that with US gasoline prices, going from your claimed 110mpg to 70mpg of a 250, would severely hurt anyone's budget.
