Bad names for bikes, part one

Anyone fancy a Fiddle?

Spotted this feller on the streets of Nice last week. It's a Sym scooter called a Fiddle, or in this case, it's the revamped Fiddle 2 - a far superior model to the original Fiddle.

Can you suggest any apt Fiddle owners?

Hyosung and Kymco own this category.

Would you like a long ride on a Hyosung Beaver?

If that's not to your taste, perhaps you would prefer a Kymco Top Boy.

Kymco could sell you a new Cherry if someone took yours.

Imagine the pride you would feel astride your Kymco Dink or Grand Dink.

Care to take a gamble on a Kymco Bet & Win?

If you're sick of those names, perhaps you have a Kymco Super Fever.

The Honda Bros is right up there as an arse name for a bike!

The 1200cc " Harley Handbag"is the worst.


And what's that "Shiver" bollocks about?


BMW's Funduro......sounds like a condom.

Hog or Harley Davidson. It congers up visions of over weight, inefficient, gas guzzling, leather clad and chrome monsters (that's just the owners), unreliable ineffective, low and old tech dinosaurs.

I'm insulted haha!

I am the VERY PROUD owner of the Sym Fiddle THE ORIGINAL.

A very fast bike with perfect gearing on the variator, it is my most reliable bike and had for £95.

The 4 stroke fiddle 2 is larger, clunkier, and nowhere near as cool as the original, and the name is perfect matching its great accelaration, often out accelerating those with power pipes on speedfights or Derbi Sendas!
