I was originally considering purchasing a moped for city commuting and occasional road trips.
Research convinced me that a slightly more powerful vehicle is a better choice for safety reasons. The Eliminator can easily hold the pace, even on highways or interstates. Fuel economy is an honest 85 mpg! This is even better than some mopeds/scooters. The tank capacity of 3.6 gallons creates a nice cruising cushion. Driving comfort is very reasonable. My bike has never failed to start and maintenance costs have been very reasonable for about 3,000 miles this summer. This bike is most comfortable between 30-50 mph. The fifth gear is very elastic and the nicely-purring engine delivers enough torque even in the lower rpms. In summary, it is a very nice, reliable bike for city riding and smaller road trips with awesome economy.
Upgrades/Accessories: My bike is just a simple, standard edition. For out-of-city commuters I would recommend saddlebags and windshield.
