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:
