2008 Roketa MC 54 150 Scooter Review

by Anonymous

Bought this Roketa MC 54 150 scooter with less than 300 miles on it. It was a floor demo model from a local car dealer, and to be honest, it was a nice looking machine. Very sporty. After a month, I was ready to pay someone to take it.

Every time I turn around, there's something else wrong with it. Right now it's sitting in the back yard, broke down again, while I'm waiting for parts to be shipped from California. When the parts do finally arrive, I've got to try and do the work myself. Why? Because I can't find anyone within a 100 mile radius willing to work on the darn thing.

If you have mechanical know how, and like working on stuff like this, then by all means, buy one. If you just want a reliable scooter, then... PLEASE DON'T.

I got an MC-54 250CC at an auction and have had pretty good luck with it.
My main complaint is the noise: it rattles and buzzes like there wasn't a single tight screw on the whole thing, and the carry-box (or whatever it's called) is the worst offender.
The very first thing I did was get some 1/8" rubber hose, slit it, and glue it onto the box rim, but the lid still rattles, mostly from the area of the latch.
I take this on the freeway in California a lot, but keep the speed to 55: going the max of 65 makes the seat too hot and burns my . . . . seat.

Help this helps some,

Comparing the 2008 to the 2011 NEW
by: Anonymous

I am (or at least was) looking at the MC-D54B 250CC Roketa. Any idea how that compares to the 2008 you own?

Battery Tender Junior in package

A battery tender like the Battery Tender Jr. can make all the difference in whether your scooter will start right up each spring, after being stored for months.

Just about every scooter owner needs to have a battery tender, sometimes called a trickle charger. Unless you are lucky enough to live in a climate where you can ride all year long, chances are your scooter will be put on ice, figuratively-speaking, for at least a couple months every winter.

One of the key steps in winterizing a scooter is to protect your battery from draining during its "rest" period. This can – and will – happen if you leave your battery sitting untended in your cold scooter over the winter, even if it's in a garage or shed.

Read our review or go right to Amazon.com to buy this highly recommended Battery Tender Jr NOW...

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

Chances are, there is a good reason. Did you...
