Your mates may take the piss out of the name but the Suzuki is cheap and a good commuter.
Great underseat storage
Lack of kudos

Terrible name, good big scooter. Once the initial novelty of the push button gear change has worn off, which won’t be long as it is fairly crap, just enjoy this big scoot for what it is, an excellent town machine.

Big scooters are amazingly practical. The underseat storage is huge, handling acceptable and you can actually ride on a motorway at 70mph, making it a definite option of a commuter bike.
