We were a vento dealer for their scooter line for a while. They were very stylish and looked to be well designed. The company sucks. The 6 month parts only warranty starts when the units arrive at the dealership, not when the customer takes delivery. And who knows how damn long you might wait for parts when you did need them. Vento will also not cover the battery from day one. And they will drain the battery within a couple weeks if not ran nearly every day.
You would be better off picking up a small street bike from Kawasaki.-2$en#e-

Looks like a POS to me, 24HP, exactly what is that good for? for that money and an entry level bike, look at something like this, at least it's a real motorcycle, lots of clean low milage ones on there in that price range, just pulled this one for an example. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/LOW-...604665051QQcategoryZ50048QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
same seat height as that vento, about a hundred lbs heavier and could ride all day with you on yer HD.
Of course, I personally consider a FXDL or similar an entry level/beginner bike......

I really like the "disco" brakes:whistle: I think it is a direct copy of the Yamaha 250 Virago.

The Vento uses or copies the Yamaha 250 Virago motor. Both bikes are the same price. So which would you buy?:coffee:

How can you call something "V-Thunder" with only 24 HP?

Oughta call it "Scooter-Thunder" or better yet "Scooter-Fart"!

A Fatboy with a Yamaha motor? Harley may sue for the air cleaner design. Don't they have a patent on that?:nunu:

That engine is made by Lifan in China and it is a duplicate of a Honda engine but without the reliability. We had a dealer here selling them. They went out of business.
