Great for urban riding, and will run 50-mph on the flat, so keeping up with traffic is not a problem.  Does bog down to about 40-mph on steeper hills with a heavier rider.

Requires a lot less attention when starting/stopping or riding slowly than my NT700V, and is a lot easier to park.

I had a Chinese, 49cc scooter for 1.5 years (got it Xmas 2009). Finding parts for the item...and dealing with constant repairs, forced me to find new modes of transportation.

At 44 years old, I decided to purchase the H. Elite (motorcycle license required - I passed the course this weekend!)

I chose the Honda Elite because of it's brand name (i.e. reliability)....city street power and price (I got an $800 rebate lowering my price to $2,200)and THE BOMB feminin style (wish it came in pink however).

After reading THIS article...and TONS of reviews...not only does this little scooter leave cars "in your wake"...it gives me SAFER steering / mobility around traffic vs a 49cc scooter.
No longer forced into blind spots or relegated to last in the pack...I am usually ahead of traffic and SAFER because I can STAY AHEAD.
For CITY driving...this machine ROCKS!!! Car drivers will wonder where all that power came from. All they have to do is look at my taillights!! Thank you Honda!!
