Well I bought it with 2400 miles,and just turned 3000. Watching my take off speed in town have gotten 49 to 51 mpg past 3 tanks of gas. Hope to take a all highway trip at mostly 70 mph to see how it does.
I had many bikes,only one other scooter(a Kymco 500) and will say the only thing the 500 seemed better on was the feel of the ride,maybe because of the 15" front 14 rear tire,however the SW is not to say "bad" at all and comes out ahead on all other respects.
Thanks for letting me be a part of this forum,what great info can be found here.Iwill jump in from time to time,however I am not a fast tiper.

Thanks again, Frank sunny PS Got down to 45degrees last night had to put on a set of long johns this morning,are you northen boys jelious?????

No I'm not jelious, but I am jealous :LOL

If you put some HyperPro front springs on, your Swing will feel like a different machine, guaranteed.

Tankyuong:
As mentioned, the hyperpro progressive springs will make a huge difference in how the Swing feels and handles. They make it much smoother and stable in the corners and greatly reduce the nose dive on hard braking. They cost about $140.00 (US). My garage charged me about an hour of labor to install them. Definitely worth every penny.
