That's a pretty radical deviation to get the 4T to mount up, but they did a great job preserving the lines and look!

Thanks for the video! Some things look very familiar and others look very alien!

Was that a flux capacitor i spotted in there?

So does that mean if you wreck it and the frame's bent, it's possible that you can just replace the bent part instead of "she's toast, sorry dood"? Very Happy

From what I understand, the frame of a metal-bodied scooter is never 100% irreparably bent! You and your buddies just bend it back! Smile

I'm not sure how that would work. It'd be tough to just bend one half. I'd be more concerned about the tubular inner framing for the engine.

I want to see one up close to really see how they did this. One thing that bothers me is I believe the Gas tank is now only 1.5 gal. I am not sure but that is what I heard. I really hope that they kept at least a 2 gal capacity for gas.

It is one dreamy looking scoot!

Len, the original Stella gas tank was only relevant because of the MPG it got. This one gets way more than that, so losing a few points of a gallon is not even an issue. IMHO.

LOL! Very Happy

I wonder if they took away from the main or the "reserve" when they dropped the capacity. Very Happy

It's a 150. I think they have a 125 in the UK.
