Hello all just got my new scoot and i am very happy with it so far. Although it seems like the break-in period is very long(627 miles).

Are there any other Typhoon owners out there?

Congrats and welcome to MV.

That's pretty much the same break-in period for almost all scoots out there that I'm aware of. The main thing you'll need to know is that you really have to get that first oil change at that point. Other than that, ride it as you like, and visit us here occasionally.

Welcome to MV - you'll quickly develop a wonderful relationship with your scoot.

And yes... we love pictures.

Welcome to scooting! The break-in period will fly by in no time, that is, unless you live in snowed in country. Otherwise, it's really easy to see those miles go by!

Yes, I do have one, but it's a 2 Stroke 70cc.....I haven't seen the new 125's, but I have seen pictures....where is yours?
Typhoons are rare in the USA....they only imported 50's for a couple of years.....but very common in Europe.....
What kind of performance are you getting? GPS'd Top end speed?
Mine goes around 55mph GPS....

I haven't seen the top end speed yet because i am still breaking it in. I'm not sure how i can mount my GPS either. But i will post a pic sometime tonight or tomorrow

edit: also im not sure of many places around here that i can even go 55mph.
Im in Brooklyn NY. so every ten feet there is another stop light

Welcome New Yawker!....nice looking ride. Not sure where you can get up speed in Brooklyn, but if you can trailer it out onto Long Island (say Riverhead on out)...you'll get up speed there (I hate the L.I.Expressway....it's just crazy wild). Ride safe Laughing emoticon
