2011 QLINK Rave Review


The 2011 QLINK Rave is a 150-cc scooter that has an air-cooled, single-cylinder, four-stroke engine powering it. The engine delivers around 12 horsepower and 10.5 lb-ft of torque. This power is easily accessible with a single twist of the throttle thanks to the continuously variable transmission. Weighing at around 223 pounds, the Rave 150 is a little heavier than usual, which makes the ride more comfortable and smooth but also makes maneuverability a little more problematic than in other scooters.

The Rave was introduced by QLINK in 2010, and for its second year the scooter remains mostly unchanged. It costs significantly less than the other 150-cc scooters like the Piaggio Fly 150, but it still has a distinctively sporty and aggressive exterior design. The use of grey accents around the scooter and the well-sculpted front end gives the Rave a unique look. Inside, the scooter has a twin-sided swing arm suspension in the rear with two shock absorbers for maximum comfort. The engine provides average power, but its limited torque of 10.5 lb-ft makes acceleration a problem. The engine displacement to weight ratio is 0.67cc and the fuel economy is quite good at 110 miles per gallon. However, the fuel tank is limited to just 1.6 gallons of gas, which is much less than usual. The 2011 QLINK Rave has a telescoping fork suspension for the front wheel, and it comes with a two-year warranty.
