In the world of automotive engineering and design, most people think the older the company, the better the product will be. While this theory is solid most of the time it would be a mistake to not consider some of the relative newcomers to the industry. Many of these companies aren’t bogged down by old traditions and ideas, as well as existing expectations, from the past and can start fresh with cutting edge ideas and designs without fear of upsetting the established balance. Regardless of the type of vehicle you are in the market for, it makes sense to explore some of the other options out there, especially if they are from new companies. One such company is Tomberlin. This company got its start in 1991 with ATV engineering and sales. From that point on, the idea has been to produce high quality vehicles perfectly designed for their desired uses. Tomberlin has produced on and off road vehicles, as well as go-karts, scooters, and other outdoor vehicles. In the quest to make a name for itself in the highly competitive market, this company offered the 2008 RCX, a scooter, to the two-wheeled loving population.
The idea of riding a scooter doesn’t appeal to everyone, but there are some decided advantages to this type of two-wheel design. The RCX shows off those advantages rather well. While there is no way this model is going to be mistaken for a full-sized motorcycle, the RCX has plenty going for it in terms of style and design. The sporty body design for the RCX is hard to miss and the details and design work well for the scooter. Riders are sure to appreciate the streamlined, yet detailed look of the bike while enjoying the protection from the elongated front end and windshield. The seat is equipped to accommodate two passengers with a decent degree of comfort. Available in several colors, buyers will find there are plenty of ways to make this RCX model their own.
Like most scooters, the 2008 Tomberlin RCX is equipped with a single-cylinder engine and coupled with a highly effective continuously variable transmission. That style transmission has become incredibly popular with manufacturers for scooter design. It seems whether the CVT is found in car or bike it works well to provide smooth transitions from gear to gear almost without the driver or rider being aware of the changes. The RCX scooter is capable of holding about 3 gallons of fuel and provides good fuel economy whether is rider is taking a jaunt around town, using the bike to commute to and from work, or just taking a joy ride. Tomberlin also chose to give this scooter model some additional features. The wheels are aluminum to provide durability. The wheels have plenty of tread to ensure a firm grip on the road in all kinds of weather. The 2008 Tomberlin RCX has a great deal to offer anyone looking for a reliable, attractive scooter option.
