2008 Sukida SK 50 QT-9 Roma Scooter Review

by Kevin Gillespie

I live in London and had been waiting to buy a scooter for years. My dream, my lifelong ambition, and it was in my grasp. I bought this one purely on looks. I love the look of this scooter. I'd pull up next to hot honeys at the traffic lights and they would start beeping their horn and purring their engine.

Mmmm... that's what I'm talking about.

Well it was, until one month of owning the scooter and I was 2 crashes to the good, with the last one laying me up on my back for a week!

The dream one can say turned to a nightmare. Have you ever had a nightmare with your eyes open? If no, then buy a Sukida.

The thing doesn't turn worth a damn, the brakes don't work and I could only fit one bag of shopping under the seat. It looked good though, oh yes, it looked good.

So, my knee still damaged and the bike parked for 2 months, I find this site where I have to let people know the story of the time when I took on the mythical Chinese Sukida and lost.

Peace be with you.

Gee, Kevin... Sounds like a nightmare. But I have to wonder too if maybe you needed more instruction on how to ride the scooter? Not assuming anything, just wondering.

Any way, hope you're on the mend right quick!

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.
