Bandit RZ150 Scooter Review

by Gary

Here is my review of the Bandit RZ150 scooter, which is really a Taizhou ZingXang. This scooter has a very durable little engine, but very cheap electrical components, including the wire connectors, which results in overall poor reliability.

Considering the low price and my ability to tinker with and fix these things, I don't regret my purchase, but if you're not the type to be willing to or even enjoy messing with electromechanical devices, go with a higher
end scooter.

That said, if you are OK with fixing it a lot, the process is not too difficult, but is complicated because access to components is somewhat obscured by body panels, which requires some finesse to remove without damage.

I've owed two significantly less reliable vehicles in my life, both of which I gave up on; a 1985 Chevy Camaro, and a 1978 Yamaha 650, so compared to these, the scooter is OK.

Did this review on the fly at an internet coffee house. First off I bought this 2005 model in May of 2006, and the dealer designation is RC-150z, not RZ150 as stated in review. Secondly, it was made by Taizhou Zongneng Motorcycle Co., LTD, which is directly affiliated with Zhejiang Zhongneng Industry Group, best known here in the states by their trademark "ZNEN."

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.

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...
