Need to make room in my garage for my recently acquired GTS250, so I'm selling my Yamaha Riva 125cc scoot. In good condition, engine runs great, has 9200 trouble-free miles. Comes with side stand, center stand, wire basket, and copies of the owners manual and shop manual. Top speed 55mph, gets 80mpg, clear title, registered in CA thru June 2011.

Good in-town commuter or "starter scooter" since it's fairly light and easy to handle. (Plus the plastic panels are easy and cheap to replace if you dump it!) This was my first scooter ever, and was good training before I got my LX150.

Pics below. Thanks.

Whenever I see a Riva out in public, I think of this (read: your) very bike. I still remember the thread when you first got it - you've put some miles on it since then! Very cool. Sorry to see you have to sell it - but I'm sure it'll find a good home here.

Thanks, Masala! That's nice of you to say so. Yes, It's bittersweet selling it. I still remember my first ride on it - I was terrified at going so fast - 30mph! Then when I got my LX150 the Riva became my backup scooter, and the one my kids rode when home from college. Now the LX will be the backup!

So if I don't sell it, that's okay - just means we can have 3-person rides during summer vacations. Although that would mean I have to clear more space in my garage...
