    this is slow compared to most bikes. you cant compare a bike with a car cos of the power to weight ratio. some bikes has a 1:1 ratio and accelerates 0-100 in 2.8secs.

    yes..... you can also be longest long-jumper human on earth without training if you can output same energy after a heavy chilli-crab meal if you can lose 80% in body weight at the time of jump

    a tiny stock Yamaha Spark or Honda Wave properly tuned ..... will beat most cars in a short sprint from stationary start

    In the UK, you can "ride" the MP3 LT version having to have a motorbike license.. as long as u have a car driving license

    From a biker's view, it will be expensive to maintain as you need to replace 3 wheels. The wheels doesn't look common too, uncommon stuff means expensive too.

    In my days, it was relatively easy to get a motorbike license ... Class 2 covers everything. Regretted that I didnt take the test (coz mum was against it) and instead took the Class 3 and 4 (which literally speaking I could drive even big buses today )

    Now to me, the design of these "luxury" bikes are so kool and arty ... and it would be nice for some Sat and Sun hobby rides all over Singapore "countryside" and marinas. I think XMM would look pretty on such bikes too!

    Wonder can I take one of these bikes to go for the Class 2a,b,c test?

    i think bikes are still cooler than cars.

    will be taking my 2A test soon. how i wish they will allow 2A riders to ride 600cc bikes too. there are hardly any nice looking 400cc bikes in the market (not in SG that is...).
