  1. Make sure the front brake caliper is attached and check all hardware that could potentially create an “oh shit” moment. Make sure the Andretti labels are not upside down. Have fun….

  2. Actually, I like these bikes alot.

    Hydraulically activated disc brakes front & rear; dual adjustable rear shocks; locking sidestand; well-located (easy-to-use) centerstand; longer wheelbase for stability; spoked rims; voltmeter on the dashboard; integrated old-school running board/legshield (so you can ride with your feet outstretched); high quality electrical connectors; functioning kickstarter (try that on an ET4/LX 150); security locking loops on both sides (left – sidestand; right – frame); unique styling; 3yr/5k engine warrnty; 2yr/5k major parts warranty


    In Europe, these are known as the “Velvet”, and they also have a bigger 250cc Yamaha powerplant in the same frame.

    Looking forward to the long-term roadtest report!

  3. Beeb, you are so lucky I fixed your link. Somewhere, somehow it may matter. /psa

  4. The XT150 is not my style. I don’t have any specific complaints about it, just don’t like it’s size or styling myself.

    I love the M50 and X50.
    Especially the X50, the styling/fit/finish and overall quality has really impressed me so far, like the LED taillight panel.

    The first 2 we got needed a lot of tightening/tweaking, the latest have been about as ready to go out of the box as any scooter can be.

  5. I have had an XT150 for about 3 months and I love it. I always get asked what kind it is and where I got it. Many people think it is a motorcycle. I have had no problems at all.
    I have about 900 miles on it and it just keeps getting smoother. The top speed so far has been about 70. It handles very much like a small to medium sport cycle.
