2008 RV 250 Gas Scooter Review

by Barney

2008 RV 250 Gas Scooter Review: I rode motorcycles for years, but kids... job... nagging ex-wife... I finally got back to riding this summer. I read a bazillion reviews and looked at many bikes before buying this scooter. Yup, brand new in 2010.

It ride and handles great, look very cool and like others, I get asked questions and get looks everywhere I travel.

It all started with a weak battery... then a blown CDI, then the headlights went out, all of this was finally traced to the voltage regulator... but wait! Now the dash lights are on the fritz.

And all of this happened after Carter Brothers (US distributor) lost their stock in a huge fire.

Fortunately, the folks and Pride of Cleveland have gone out of their way to take care of this matter. They have gotten parts from Canada and all of it is being run through the Warranty system.

The only thing about the bike that concerns me it that the seat hinge seems a little flimsy.

My girlfriend her kids and my oldest daughter are all eager to learn to ride...

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...


ATTENTION! I have had to delete the Scooter Forum for this site, unfortunately. Despite my best efforts, I could not adequately prevent daily attacks by hackers and spammers. Even though most of their posts did not go public, they still cluttered up my website host's server space, jeopardizing my account. I appreciate everyone's contributions over the past few years and I apologize for having to do this.

Wondering why your scooter question never got posted?

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

If you "checked yes" on any of the points above, then I've deleted your post. Sorry, but I have standards. Feel free to re-submit, following the instructions I have everywhere on the site.

Also... all submissions have to be reviewed by me, and I am currently backlogged. Comments go live without approval, but still take 30 to 60 minutes to show up, so don't repost them, please.
