I'd imagine these would sell very well in European countries ...with tight street commutes   Undecided
I couldn't comment on your neck of the country ... but guessing ?   Portugal  right ? 

They ( scooters , mopeds and the like ) are all over Italia .

Not so much , in Trumpdom  its either mega speed crotch rockets or mega trick cruisers & easy rider chops.

but every so often , y'll see a millennium , wiz by maybe at balls to the wall 30 MPH   Smiley

Here's the most common type in the Philippines-I've seen a whole family of 5 riding one! They use them to power sidecar taxis, called "tricycles" even, the sidecar is probably bigger than the bike. With a sidecar, 40kmhr is about tops, but with just the bike I've cruised 80-90 klicks with no problem. Most Americans would call it a scooter, because of the appearance, but it's a regular motorcycle, has chain drive and transmission with gears. Scooters have hand controls only, and variable speed belt pulleys for a drive system.

Aaah. Well, I use this nowadays (since 2004 ). I find it nimble enough for tight streets. With enough punch for out of town

But I still like the looks of that moped.

Portugal yes. But I've been dodging speed limits for 40 years.  Embarrassed

Yes, I can see how that would have you dodging speed limits! I'm sure that every bike I've had, except the first one, a Honda CL350, could earn me a speeding ticket about anywhere, without getting past 3rd gear. And none of them have been anything considered a FAST bike!

Er, well. That's not the fastest bike I've had. Embarrassed

This one was. Grin
Could mark more than 180 mph on the speedometer, 80 mph in first gear.

Ummm- Yeah they don't get much faster than a GSXR Suzuki. My Uncle had one for a short time-it WAS NOT stock. It would go well over 180, he put a for sale sign on it before it could get him killed.

My Harley used to be able to get over 150 on the speedometer, but then I got the right speedo drive gear... Grin

Always liked those clean lines. But never been an off roader. Even though I owned a 125 off road Suzuki just to go to work while I had the 1100.

It was just like this one red and all. But the engine was 125cc not 185cc.

Enduro styling is appealing, but in truth, not that great off road sort of a compromise , off-on road bike a nitch look, but not the best for either....
Still I liked mine, now gays my tastes is the Harley Fat boy ,and A soft spot for the BMW's , and the retro Royal Enfield.
I'll never own any of them, those wishful days are long gone...still I cling to the thoughts  Embarrassed

young enough to remember , riding Honda's 1970  750cc  ( not mine ) , a 1962 Ducati Monza 250 also not mine.
My 1972 Kawasaki 175cc Enduro and the previous  mentioned 1980 Yamaha ....

 old enough to know better .... A young buck with youthful abandon , with caution thrown to the wind I rode in...

now days two wheels  Roll Eyes  in my Area you a might as well  have target painted on your backside or HIT ME pin on.

Still... there is just enough lust deep inside .... I actually, checked out the new Royal Enfield's  they are still made in the old school style.

The CRUZER with a 125cc Yeah....   just enough lust deep inside

back then the for me,  the whole ...

" Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! "

seemed right  Roll Eyes

Now....I would have liked , "the used up, worn out parts".... left out

a "reasonably preserved body" inserted  ..... "'Wow! What a Ride! " part retained  Grin

ST, can't make out the numbers on the Kaw-a friend of mine used to ride a 900.

In addition to my Harley, have a 76 CB 750 Honda in the shed, haven't rode it for a couple of years, just nee9s some minor work to get going again.

M-2, the Royal Enfields still look pretty old school, but they're somewhat updated. I believe the carburetor's gone, it's now injected, since Carbs can't make the emission rules anymore. And they've re-designed the motor, supposedly you can run a steady 70 without seizing the motor now.

The recent is a 750. The old one was a 900.

So I'm not a bike person, but I gotta say that I like the looks of that Ural bike. It's got an old style look that really appeals to me. Looked at their website and I like their patrol model (sidecar for the wife is about the only way I could ever justify getting a bike).

Hey Major! If you ever go for that R Enfield. Forget the olive drab. Go for the Classic Chrome. It's gorgeous.
Only the 1940s performance has kept me out of one of those. But I have been eyeballing the Triumphs.

@ Jake C and Major 2, also like them old Beemer look alikes, but. Sidecar riding is definetly "not for everybody".







Classic Chrome bellow:

By the way the Urals were licensed by BMW to the Soviets in 1940. At that time they were still buddies. It was before the Germans decided to tour the URSS using tanks as passports.  Roll Eyes
