Hans..I'm not sure it would make it up the mountains to your place. As I remember L67 power was nice for that climb.

Nice. My dad has been talking about getting a scooter to ride to work so he doesn't have to drive his silverado so he can save some money on gas. I'll have to show him this.

Yeah reasoning my dad wants it, is for the fact that we run around almost ALL the time. Constantly to the store and back, people'* houses and back, his work is in a populated area with lots of stop and go traffic, so this is actually perfect for him. And believe me, the Durango is NOT good citywise on gas, lucky to get 13-14 city in that.

That thing would be awesome for running errands in the city, or back and forth to work.
I love that it is enclosed so weather is not an issue.
Also, I just noticed the little "sun roof" thing. That rocks.

Got some more info on it. They have a coolant cooled OHV 1 cylinder engine, producing 17hp, and 25ft/lbs tq. It is mated to a 5 speed manual trans. All the parts are from China, and are sent here to Steubenville, Ohio and assembled here. Pretty interesting.

The more I see that thing, and think about it, the more I want one.

Haha... yeah it would be something Mr.Bean would drive.

Parts and service are at the Wildfire Dealer/Headquarters in Steubenville, OH.
